Fujitsu Limited and Red Hat today announced that, as a part of their global partnership in providing Linux-based solutions, engineers from the two companies have started to work together located on-site at a Red Hat office in Boston, Massachusetts, USA (where Red Hat’s desktop unit has now moved too, closer to Novell’s desktop unit, aka Ximian). The new organization will develop Linux features focusing on enterprise customer needs and will assert Fujitsu’s support operations in Japan and worldwide.

It seems Red Hat is trying to assert itself as “the” enteprise solution for Linux. Fujitsu is a fairly large name in the enterprise space and it seems like Novell is going (perhaps wrecklessly) head-on into the desktop realm. I know Novell recently made a deal with Fujitsu as well, but I wonder if Novell’s flirtation with desktops is going to play to Red Hat’s advantage. Perhaps everyone will think Red Hat is the only “real” solution for enterprise servers running Linux.
Redjitsu? Fuj Hat?
Are they porting RHEL to Fujitsu’s Sparc CPU?
So I think it should be quite trivial to make it run on Fujistu SPARC, if it doesn’t already.
