I guess now all the Sun mnemonics (cups, T-shirts, stickers and similar uselessnesses) instantly become an expensive rarity.

I think the graphic is well done -- Sun is dead, but Java and Linux live on...

Good Graphic, but Tux seems out of place. What does Linux have to do with Sun? If anything I think maybe Linux helped bury Sun. E.g; Solairs seems not so important as it once did.

Solaris and Linux ware friends and competed each other.

Linus Torvalds wanted a Sun workstation at his house, but they were too expensive.
Sun wound up giving rise to both Linux and Java, yet in completely different ways.
