Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Sun Microsystems plans to offer support for the Ubuntu server Linux distribution on its T1 server line, the company said at the JavaOne industry conference in San Francisco. "We will be aggressively supporting the fork work [stuff] that Ubuntu has been doing," Sun chief executive Jonathan Schwartz said at the conference. "The ideals of that community are relatively familiar to us." More here, while a comparison of Linux and Solaris on a T2000 is also available.

>I have been dealing with them off and on since 1993 and they have NEVER used Linux as a means to "get in the door" to sell a Solaris solution.

I'm curious why you didn't state this in the first place instead of your dumbass statement about IBM.

>However, I watched a Sun/Dell shop go 70% AIX simply because IBM sold management that the "best" solution was to run AIX and everything (SAP/R3, Oracle, etc.) on AIX.

Again, I DON'T CARE!! NOT talking about IBM. DON'T CARE. The topic is "Sun To Support Ubuntu Linux on Niagara"

>So do you have any experience in Sun using "bait and switch", or is it a troll?

Yeah, sure. Why not?
