Re: It was designed to fail

I much agree but the + in (10+ years ago) is almost 10 too. Oracle stated its support for Linux in 98, and bought Sun in 2010. We used Sun for software development among other *nix* systems for more than 10 years but never had a single Sun customer and it was expensive. The only odd thing with Sun Solaris was that if you switched off the console the whole system shutdown. (the Lego Sun hardware)
