That would be nice if Oracle would start tuning for Linux. Price wise
this would be benicial to those who can't afford Sun equipment. But I
think Sun finally realizes that their prices don't compete. They are
pushing the AMD 64 line pretty hard now. The Sparc processor is
expensive for Sun to make (or purchase, let's be honest). Things are
starting to get interesting.
