Parent article: Solaris 10
I dont think Sun is in a tenous position, it has a large customer base, a large and skilled engineering staff (NB: I'm obviously quite biased in saying that ;) ) and it has (from what I know of *public* Sun financial information) cash reserves. What Sun possibly does have to do is adapt to new market conditions (eg the commoditisation of core OS functionality by Linux and the rise of open source). Adapting to new conditions is something every company has to do to, and I think Sun can do it, I dont see why not.
As for Solaris 10 being the most advanced OS, or Solaris 10 versus Linux on a technical basis, well when i saw the article headline of "Solaris 10" i thought "great, now i'll get an informed, technical, objective, 3rd party view of Solaris 10 and how it stacks up
" - I didnt get that, that's what disappoints me.
And btw, my job at Sun involves working on Free Software (least it has to date).
