"Sun Microsystems Inc., which built its name on microprocessors
and the Solaris operating system, has irked open source code fans
with an apparently ambivalent attitude toward Linux. But, with its
planned acquisition of Cobalt Networks Inc., Mountain View, Calif.,
and the fact that much of its middleware is available for Linux,
the company will be a Linux power, Sun chairman Scott McNealy said
"I think we'll be the No. 1 Linux company," McNealy said at
the Gartner Symposium/Itxpo. "Despite what they say, Linux is Unix
and Sun is the biggest and best Unix company."
"We'll be number one in Linux by a long shot," he continued.
"I'll challenge our Linux experience against Red Hat any day."
