No matter how much Microsoft supporters whine about how Linux and other operating systems have just as many bugs as their operating systems do, the bottom line is that the serious, gut-wrenching problems happen on Windows, not on Linux, not on Mac OS. -- [link|http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1622086,00.asp|source]

New What do you expect them to say?
Yes we sold out to Microsoft??? The fact is that Star Office is a desktop application, something that Sun does not do very well and a category of applications that they not been interested in, in the past. Sun is not exactly rolling in money and if they do need to cut back they would cut Star Office before cutting either Solaris or Java. Sun bought Star Office when they were rolling in cash in the late 1990's to annoy Microsoft. Sun has reached a point where they can't afford the luxury of maintaining a product just to annoy Microsoft.
