SearchEnterpriseLinux.com: Sun warms up to LinuxNov 22, 2000, 07:54 (4 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Jan Stafford)
"The courtship of Sun Microsystems and Linux has run lukewarm to cold during the past few years. But now the relationship has heated up considerably, thanks to Sun's acquisition of Cobalt, which makes Linux-based thin servers, and its development of Linux-friendly development tools. Does that mean that Sun now thinks Linux is hot stuff? That depends. Sun's wavering stance towards Linux is underlined by Hinstorff in an interview with Jan Stafford, site editor of searchEnterpriseLinux."
"Analysts say that Sun is cool to Linux. Is that true?"
"Hinstorff: It's not true. The impression that Sun isn't doing much with Linux comes from the fact that our energies around Linux have been more on the development side and in the back scenes. Even so, we think Linux is great. To the very top of the company there's a lot of enthusiasm for Linux, because Linux has been good for the overall UNIX market. We want to help Linux to drive Unix forward."
