It is. I should have been clearer. I wasn't talking about vendors
supporting the Linux kernel. I was talking about independent
software projects. One such example is Eclipse. It once was
totally IBM and now it's independent. And there are the various
projects run by the Apache Foundation.

Could SGE find a home outside of Sun?
