"Adding immediate strength to Sun's new Linux directions is SuSE Linux 7.3 for Sun Microsystems' SPARC architecture. By downloading the latest release from SuSE's ftp server, SPARC users benefit from the latest Linux developments and opportunities. Sun's newly announced Linux support includes ABIcheck, an application development tool that ensures compatibility between Linux releases on Sun servers.

Sun's commitment to the Linux operating system brings additional value to customers of its Solaris/SPARC architecture. Already, Sun systems have built-in compatibility with Linux, so that any Solaris-based system can also run Linux applications. New software such as Linux Compatibility Toolkit (LinCAT), announced by Sun yesterday simplifies the process of assuring secure and stable Linux application performance on the Sun Fire family of servers.

For SuSE Linux users, the new Sun program makes key Sun Open Net Environment (Sun ONE) technologies available to the Linux platform, including the iPlanet Directory and Web servers, Forte for Java development tools, the Java/XML platform, Project JXTA, StarOffice productivity suite, Sun Chili!Soft ASP, and the Sun Grid Engine."
