There are two issues here, trust and frequency. Some people like to get builds
from Sun because they trust it more than their distro while others trust the
distro more. But even if we disregard that, there's still the issue of
frequency, until all distros provide builds with a decent amount of testing and
release engineering every couple of weeks, there's still a place for Sun builds.
