Sun promises "toe-to-toe" pricing on Linux servers
"Sun promised aggressive pricing on single- and dual-processor x86 Linux servers at a media event held this past Monday in San Francisco. On pricing, "we will absolutely go toe-to-toe with Dell and with a better product", said Stephen DeWitt, Vice President and General Manager of Content Delivery and Edge Computing and former CEO of Cobalt. On February 7th, Sun announced a line of general-purpose Linux servers and its own Linux distribution to run on them. Systems are scheduled to be available early in the second half of 2002."
