Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Sun Microsystems has benefited from another effort to make
Linux easier to use."
"Eazel has been developing software called Nautilus that lets
Linux users manage their computer files, view documents, browse the
Web, and tap into Eazel's online services. On Monday, Sun said it
will use Eazel for its own computers, which use the Solaris
operating system instead of Linux."
"In exchange, Sun will take several measures to help Mountain
View, Calif.-based Eazel. It will promote Eazel's software, let Sun
customers tap into some Eazel services, improve documentation, make
Nautilus usable by non-English-speaking people, and add abilities
to view StarOffice and Microsoft Office files within Nautilus."
