Too little, too late

Jonathan Schwartz offers a post on commoditization and then, because he can't help himself, he tosses in a postscript that effectively sez "mine's bigger 'n yours" claiming that IBM's contribution of 500 patents to the open source community is not what it appears.

What drivel.

While at Sun, I frequently suggested that Sun open source Solaris... My pleas fell on deaf ears apparently (along with my frequent rantings that Sun should embrace rather than poo-poo XML and Web services). Had Sun open sourced Solaris (and Java for that matter) then, Solaris would be in the position that Linux is in today.

Too little, too late.
