Makes sense. You're not going to compete with Sun unless you are able to
turn chip designs into silicon and I can't see Intel and AMD rushing to
incorporate GPL'ed features into their own designs. In the mean time,
universities start churning out grads who are familiar with Sparc.

Maybe they aspire to somehting like the Morotola 68000 in tems of
educational ubiquity.

It also tells you something about Sun's assessment of how robust the GPL
is for protecting their work.

Wilkl this lead to Intel and AMD having issues avoiding their work being
contaminated by GPL'ed ideas seen by graduates? Interesting...
