Sun edges towards a Linux binge
Author: JT Smith
From Internet News: "Sun Microsystems (NASDAQ:SUNW) Monday chatted up its Linux strategy with more talk of bringing its appliances to where it counts most: the "edge." The company's new line of Sun Cobalt Linux boxes, due out early in the second quarter of this year, are expected to expand the use of Linux beyond its existing appliances. The low-priced, horizontally scalable servers are expected to compete directly with similar software offerings from IBM (NYSE:IBM) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)."
