Sun Tzu said: We may distinguish six kinds of terrain, to wit: (1) Accessible ground; (2) entangling ground; (3) temporizing ground; (4) narrow passes; (5) precipitous heights; (6) positions at a great distance from the enemy.

Sun Tzu's thrust is the same--and its not just a gimmick or a ploy one uses by tacking onto a Western mindset of materialism or the like.
Sun Tzu also goes on to show that the epitome of warfighting is NOT "prolonged operations, however brilliantly executed" but the General who can avoid war and ironically by so doing receives no glory or acclaim yet is the true hero of the people and the state.
Sun Tzu looks deep into the human condition, to understand him you have to do the same; the way of a ninja is more closely related to this kind of thinking than a samurai looking for public acclaim/attention.

 The Bent Zone, AKA Sun Tzu Tech
Anyone who has jumpstarted a Sun box using Solaris anytime in the last 13 years has relied on the add_install_client script to do all the hard bits, like setting up the inetboot file in /tftpboot, and adding entries to the /etc/ethers and /etc/bootpararms.
The add_install_script took a fair amount of the complexity that you might have to do by hand and did it for you, despite the fact that the parameters required to drive add_install_client can give the typing fingers a real workout.
The only thing the $7.6B in cash probably does is stave off someone buying Sun for $6B in cash and floating a $7.6B loan for the duration of procedures.
