Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"For Linux, the next frontier is the enterprise."
"And while it has many powerful backers in that market -- from
IBM and Hewlett-Packard to Dell and Computer Associates -- one big
question mark remains: Sun Microsystems."
"The server powerhouse has been ambiguous and ambivalent about
Linux, observers said. To date, Sun has pledged to support the
GNOME graphical user interface and released StarOffice code to the
masses, and so on. People can even download some distributions of
Linux for UltraSPARC from its website. Sun, however, has stopped
short of making Linux available on its machines."
"But now that the new Linux 2.4 kernel is expected to scale up
the operating system to support higher levels of multiprocessing,
observers said, Sun needs to better outline its Linux stance."
