Of course Sun doesn't really get it. - 11:40
Yesterday I commented on some Sun developer noticing the sour grapes attitude of the LTT developers. Interestingly today on LWN there was a link to a diary entry from some Sun engineer going on about reasons he thinks Sun cant use Linux or work with Linux kernel development people. Greg K-H (Linux kernel developer) has a rather good rebuttal to this. Interestingly he pretty much points out that working with the Linux kernel developers on some feature until everyone is sure it can go in to the kernel (will be maintained, is of high quality, that it will in fact be used and useful) is how you go about getting stuff into the kernel. You do not simply put code in because some marketing or management person says it is absolutely necessary.
