As far as i know sun is the largest open source company in the world (in term of revenue). they have contributed more code and technology to open source than any other company in the world. they are the first server vendor to support all three major Linux distro (redhat, suse, ubuntu) in their server lines. if you are criticising sun for marketing open-source solaris operating system then what you will say about IBM marketing of AIX and HP marketing of HP-UX?. Linux is essential component in open source eco-system, but open source isn't all about Linux. Linux community shouldn't be afraid from competition. fair competition will ultimately help Linux to grow. Read this article to get the true defintion of open source:- http://www.niyam.com/gnulinux/lfy/fy/FY-monthly-col.php?feb2k7
