VNUNet: Get connected, says Sun’s McNealy

“Standalone devices will soon be obsolete and so consumers must
“simply connect”, warned Scott McNealy, Sun Microsystem’s chairman

“”The big challenge we all face is to make them connect and

the home networking battle.”

“”Don’t go Windows. Linux is free, it’s smaller, faster, better

“McNealy believes more and more companies will adopt the
Linux free model. “Things will go for free,” he said.”
