Fun Stuff

It’s always a drag reading eWeek’s Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols. He just gets so much stuff about Solaris so completely wrong. I do enjoy reading all the blogs correcting his articles, though — here, here, here, here.

  1. Just a note sjvn … I have never worked for Sun and probably never will. Holding your mouse over the mailto link will usually display the email address of the poster (if they entered it) in your browser.

  2. I, on the other hand, find it amusing that Sun employees think that claiming that critics of their company in their ‘personal’ blogs proves anything except that they know who’s signing their paychecks.

  4. I am surprised that I am not the only one who recognizes SJVN as a poor quality journalist.
    I was working for a startup ISP back in 1994/1995 and my boss was interviewed by SJVN for some background on how dialup worked, which later appeared in an article in the HUGE Computer Shopper (now a shadow of its former self).
    He got just about every bit of jargon wrong and managed to get confused about TCPIP besides.

    Welcome to the fine world of “journalism”. Journalists don’t have to be right or wrong, they just have to hold viewers for the commercials.

  6. SJVN gets so much stuff about everything completely wrong. Honestly, I can’t believe he still has a job. Lately it appears that he just cruises the threads on /. and OSNews, selecting a few choice comments from the various flamewars and rewording them to string together another misguided opinion piece. It is difficult for me to believe that he is not intelligent enough to figure out that most of his subtle (or not so subtle, depending on your viewpoint) attacks on Sun are full of half truths and outright lies. The Linux community seems to be engaging in the same sort of tactics that Microsoft once used. Sadly, after more than a decade, I can no longer consider myself a part of that community. Now I understand how conservative Democrats feel.
