Sun flirts with Ubuntu
,----[ Quote ]
| At JavaOne, both sides say they really like each other--suggesting a
| role for Ubuntu's upcoming "Dapper Drake" operating system on Sun
| Microsystems' servers.
| Ubuntu Linux got a ringing endorsement from Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz
| on Tuesday. In turn, Ubuntu project founder Mark Shuttleworth appeared
| on stage here during Schwartz's opening keynote at JavaOne to endorse
| "Ubuntu is gaining a ton of momentum," Schwartz said in a meeting
| with reporters after his keynote presentation. "It is arguably one
| of the most important, if not the most important Linux distro out
| there." That's a poke in the eye for RedHat and Novell, the other
| two major Linux distributors.
