Come on! Everyone knows that the only reason Sun went SysV is because
they slept with AT&T. If that had not happened, since Sun was the leader
in the field at the time, SVR4 would not be NEARLY as prevalent. A lot
of businesses invested much of their capital budget in Sun systems. They
are using Solaris now because they don't really have a choice.
All because Sun and AT&T slept together, and Sun got screwed.
