A pot for Sun's open source potpourri?

,----[ Quote ]
| To be fair, Sun hasn't had the luxury of starting and building a singular
| project to the point where other, even totally unrelated projects are found
| worthy by association (an open source mustard seed of sorts, a la the Apache
| web server). Also, until recently, Sun hasn't been associated with an open
| source pedigree despite having been active here and there dating back to
| 1999. Still in order to leverage any kind of cross relevance within its
| growing stable of open source efforts, Sun must establish distinguishing
| aspects of an open source approach which reflects the company's overarching
| strategic perspective.

| Sun has discovered the exact same thing. Freedom sells. Or, rather,
| services around freedom sell. The freedom itself is, well, free.
