Sun, IBM Ink OS Deal - Yahoo! News

Strange days indeed -- note that this article is speculation in advance of the IBM/Sun briefing 

Sun President and CEO Jonathan Schwartz and IBM hardware group chief Bill Zeitler will host the call, indicating that IBM may be ready to support Solaris on its Intel-based line of servers, which it calls System x and BladeCenter systems.

In fact, IBM has listed Solaris as one OS option for System X and BladeCenter systems on its Web site since May, according to the Internet Archive Web site.

It's a big step for IBM, since the company has historically been a major proponent of Linux.

The company, however, also sells the Windows OS on its Intel systems.
