"There's been a lot of speculation on the future of Cobalt
now that Sun has announced its intentions to purchase the company
for $2 billion. During a rundown of the company's new Qube3 server
appliance, we asked about the future of Linux at Cobalt, and found
out no one's ready to talk yet."
"For their part, Cobalt refuses to comment on their Linux
future, claiming that the two businesses are in a pre-acquisition
"We don't know what Suns's doing, and we don't know how much Sun
knows about what we're doing. We can't sit down and make plans
together. As it stands right now, it's business as usual," said
Peder Ulander, director of Product Marketing at Cobalt."
