Well, SUN sells _slow_ hardware, so I still don't see how gnome would
help them --- just the opposite, people will be able to compare
performance with their supermarket-bought home PCs --- and will see
SUN come out second.  Certainly happens here, on brandnew SunBlades
(which, truth be told, are hardly more than SUN-labbeled supermarket
PCs anyway, and pretty good awful ones for that).
