Sun Sticks 'Proprietary' Label on Red Hat Linux

Sun Sticks 'Proprietary' Label on Red Hat Linux: "A surprising breach appeared to open between leading Unix and Linux companies on Monday as Sun Microsystems' chief executive called Red Hat 'a proprietary Linux distribution.'
The catcall was sounded in an eWEEK.com interview with Sun Microsystems Inc. President and Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Schwartz. Besides challenging Red Hat Inc.'s contention that it is the premiere Linux company, the remark casts the relationship of the companies into a more adversarial light. "

UNIX all over again -- sigh...
