Sun Microsystems made two strategic moves Monday to answer calls from its user base, by announcing the company’s first general-purpose server to run Linux and bringing back a version of its Solaris operating system that runs on Intel chips.

And from early next year, Solaris 9.0 for Intel will be an option, too. Read the news at InfoWorld and TheRegister. Our Take: It seems that the SecretSix team made it! x86 Solaris 9 is back!
