Heh, my Uncle was one of the 3 global regional sale reps for SUN for several years (asia region out of Japan at one point), and would have meetings with Scott. Around 2001 I pulled him aside at a family event and told him if SUN did not provide better support to the Sparc Linux port they would die as Linux rose to prominence in the server space. Told him we (linux / free software fans) liked the Sparc hardware, but would be forced to get off of it over time without better support from SUN. Sometimes it sucks to be right, Sparc Linux was really nice on the old Sun workstations. Oh well.
