I don't know about everyone else, but in the fortune 100 company I happen to work for they are moving all new projects to AIX and Linux. This has been going on for the last year. The sad part, for Sun/Oracle, is that it used to be a primarily Sun shop. Now all new projects are AIX and Linux and there is no interest in approving any Sun equipment. All the tech refresh projects we have are moving businesses to either AIX or Linux. This represents a fairly large revenue stream that they are losing. Seems to be a common trend from blogs/forums/etc. that I'm reading.

I would still download torrents of it instead of paying for cable, because I believe great art should be a labor of love, unsullied by commercial interests :-D

Wasn't that Lost?

Which part of $1.5B isn't beneficial? Their banks collect interest and their manufacturers make sales.

Meanwhile, 36K acres to power 150K homes? Doesn't a nice nuclear plant only need 100 acres or so to provide power that same number?

In you nuclear plant scenario are they mining and refining the necessary materials to power that plant on that 100 acres as well? What about the coolant?
