"Q: Sun has done quite a bit in the way of
Linux support, but you really haven't gone the IBM route of
marketing Linux-based systems. Why is that?
A: We're the No. 1 Linux appliance server
supplier in the world with the Cobalt line [from the acquisition of
Cobalt Networks Inc. last year]. We have Linux extensions to
Solaris. We just don't think a Linux partition on a mainframe makes
a lot of sense. It's kind of like having a trailer park in the back
of your estate."
