Gee ... where to start?

1. The IT department there was clearly incompetent, but I don't see that 
one can blame Windows for malware or pornography, any more than one can 
blame the human body for the common cold virus or the victim for a murder.

2. Other than Red Hat, are there any major corporations in the USA where 
*any* form of Linux is the *dominant* tool set in the IT infrastructure? 
Is that even true at Red Hat?

3. Is the IT infrastructure at Sun based on Solaris?
