Looks like my Linux Replacing Unix theory is getting traction. During Linux World, IBM announced that Unilever was adopting Linux. Unilever has been and HPUX and AIX shop, according to ComputerWorld (who did not provide an electronic version of their cover story...). Looks like the Unix vendors are shifting to Linux - HP and IBM figured this out awhile ago. Sun has a different problem, since the bulk of their revenue comes from their proprietary hardware - and IMHO, there are fewer and fewer reasons to consider buying Sparc and Solaris instead of intel and Linux. It's going to be an interesting next couple of years for them.
