its own offerings in those very lines.
"In the past year and a half there have been some vast changes in Sun's view," said Harry Foxwell, a senior systems engineer for Sun who spoke at a
recent meeting in McLean, Va., sponsored by the Baltimore-Washington Beowulf User Group.
"We're not getting rid of our core technologies, but we are recognizing customers are interested in what they can do with low-cost commodity hardware
and what they can do with the Linux environment," Foxwell said.
This is a big move for Sun, which specializes in industrial-grade servers and workstations. Although Sun has publicly embraced Linux since 2002, it is
now seeing use for it in the enterprise computing arenas--its core market.
