of the O'Reilly Open Source Convention.
"After two days of tutorials, O'Reilly's OSCON Open Source Convention began in earnest yesterday by highlighting some unusual approaches to open source software development and use, including Sun's contention that OpenSolaris should be compared to Linux less on ideology and more on a technical basis.
Sun COO Jonathan Schwartz asserted that his company's recently opened operating system was bringing more competition and choice to the community and that beyond ideological differences, was comparable to Linux. "Let's compare them," he said. "It's no longer about competing with a social movement. Let's get the politics out of the way we talk about competition."
