Sun Buys Cobalt
Sun has finally decided to move into the server appliance arena, by purchasing Cobalt Networks, a leader in that marketplace.
develop its own product(s). Sun also gets a credible Linux hardware offering, without having to call the spin doctors to explain away the previous anti-Linux statements. Cobalt gets a stable parent, the ability to absorb the (hopefully) short-term losses associated with start-up companies, and a large sales force. From a forward-looking business standpoint, we feel this deal is a good thing, and we believe both the consumers and the two companies will benefit from the acquisition. Not-so-positives :

To close the circle, Paul Ferris, Editor at Linux Today, highlighted the silliness by publishing his own mostly-joking piece on how to uninstall both Windows and Linux. (His directions lead to a wiped out disk drive, of

More cracks appear in the Wintel duolith, as Linux appears to be the first OS “ready for prime time” on Intel’s 64-bit “Itanium” processor. Despite Microsoft’s

No Preordained Plan The way the Itanium OS story is unfolding is more a result of market forces than any preordained plan on Intel's part. Intel officials at its semi-annual Intel Developer Forum in Palm Springs this week said they were unaware of any change in Microsoft's plans to deliver
