Sun Microsystems

Sun is cool. Sun is trying. Sun gave up the True Faith of Berkeley UNIX for a theoretical marketing advantage in AT&T's "System V" UNIX that it took years to shove down the throats of their customers. Now, their thing is Java, which, while it is an interesting attempt to deal with some serious problems in software engineering, is a complete security disaster when used on the Internet and with the World Wide Web. Idiots!

I own some Suns, and have been collecting some information about them in my web pages. It's not complete, but it is accurate so far as I can tell:
