Boston Globe Online / Business / Sun to sell Linux systems "Michael Goulde, a product manager in Microsoft's Windows program management group, said he has seen no ''significant deployments'' of Linux on desktop PCs. He called Sun's pending announcement a reaction to the threat Linux poses to Solaris, Sun's core operating system for high-performance computers, and the threat Intel Corp.'s microprocessors pose to Sun's Sparc server chips.
''Sun is reacting with a strategy du jour to help give it some sense of direction while trying to lock customers in to a proprietary version of Linux,'' he said in a prepared statement."
