Sun’s Next Goal: a Linux Ecosystem

Sun’s ambitions have grown another size larger. The server and software company launched its servers based on its own UltraSparc T1 ‘Niagara’ chips in December, a major part of a drive to restore its lost luster and financial strength. But alongside the hardware launch came a more quiet software push: an attempt to make the Linux and BSD Unix open-source operating systems a serious option for buyers of Sparc-based computers. To promote the technology combination, Sun is trying to coax an accompanying software business into existence.
