"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 'quiet period.'"

"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."
