Sun Takes a Shine to Linux in New Web Stack

Author: JT Smith

Much of the open source community relies on the popular LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) application stack, a setup that traditionally has been offered through Linux vendors.

Sun Microsystems is now joining the party with its own take on the LAMP stack -- one that could pose a challenge to the LAMP offerings from Linux vendors, since it's aimed at users of Linux as well as Sun Solaris. Eventually, it will support Windows and Mac OS X, too.

Officially called the Web Stack by Sun, the new enterprise "AMP" (Apache, MySQL and PHP) stack also aims to create a new revenue stream from Linux for Sun.
