Re: another buy out of my bread and butter

As I recall, Sun killed the x86 version to boost sales of their Cobalt Linux.

It did boost sales of Linux alright - SuSE Linux, RedHat Linux . . .

Cobalt Linux died, Sun revived x86 and then shot themselves in the other foot by charging for patches when others were free.
