PC Week: Sun asks IBM to preload SolarisJul 29, 1999, 02:57 (15 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Deborah Gage)
"Linux is creating lots of havoc in the operating system world. So much so, in fact, that Sun Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy has asked IBM to preload the "Solaris on Intel kernel" on every IBM NetFinity server the company ships, according to Jul Soria, IBM's worldwide manager of alliance development."
"And in an unusual turn of events, IBM actually is "examining the business case" for Solaris on Intel, although an IBM spokesman for NetFinity says there is "no way" IBM will preload Solaris on its PC servers."
"Coincidentally, IBM this week will announce worldwide support on NetFinity servers for Linux, the spokesman said."
