I cribbed this from a recent email newsletter I got and thought it was 

At a recent Sun Microsystems press event, Sun execs talked up plans to
market the company's Solaris Unix OS to startups and small-to-midsize
businesses. "Open source is what [customers] want to go after," said
Peder Ulander, Sun's vice president of software marketing. "It's not so
much Linux. Linux just happens to embody open source."

That's an interesting question:  is your committment to open-source or 
is it to Linux?  Would you consider using Solaris in place of Linux if 
it were GPL?

Is there something about Linux beyond the GPL that makes it attractive?
