Linux in China
"Sun Microsystems has pulled off a huge coup in signing a deal with the Chinese government for up to a million Linux desktops over the next year."
Like one visitor on the site asked, is China actually paying anything for these systems? Or did they manage to convince Sun that their presence in China is reward enough?
Some of us here are way too old for OSS bashing.
If this forum weren't like Slashdot, we would read the article and see $50-150 per user.
By the way, I'm not talking about the China deal, but how much normal users would pay. They're trying to gain credibility for their system by the China deal.

Just me (Sir to you)
Obviously I missed something -- did Sun give up on Solaris? How does selling software written in Java earn them anything more substantial than, say, articles in ZDNet? (=
