"Spencer wondered why Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy was so
snippy at the company's much-trumpeted clustering software launch

restricted to Solaris and not available on Linux, McNealy's
aggravation seemed to peak. "You people just don't get it, do you?
All Linux applications run on Solaris, which is our implementation
of Linux. Now ask the question again," said the usually jovial Java
giant. "Funny," thought His Hirsute ness, "everyone else seems to
think Unix and Linux are separate platforms."
