Win-OS/2 became an excuse for ISVs to not provide native OS/2 ports.

If its Sun's intention to capitalize on Solaris x86/Opteron to
expand the entire Solaris ecosystem, then Janus should be seen by
Sun as a good hack in the short term; a bad hack with prolonged use.

Sun's in the market to sell hardware, not OSes.

Their proper goal is to seek to get people to buy their hardware.  If
it gives enough "warm fuzzies" to people to have the Sun name on the
front and Linux on the login, this is not a "bad hack."

That was true years ago.

Sun is making money hand over fist with Java.
