"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."
