But is Larry making a sustainable profit on the remnants of Sun, or is
he burning the capital (reputation and otherwise) Sun built up, driving
the last fragments of Sun even further into the ground?

Personally, I suspect it's closer to the latter; it certainly is for
the parts of it I see.  But time will, as always, tell.
