Sun will certify Canonical's Ubuntu Linux on its x86 servers, the company has said.
Techworld brings us the word:
Earlier this year, Ubuntu became the first Linux distribution to support Sun's UltraSparc T1 processor, also known as Niagara, which powers Sun's CoolThreads servers, the Sun Fire T1000 and T2000.
The closer alignment with Sun comes alongside Ubuntu's move to expand from its well-known desktop Linux into servers. Sun, meanwhile, is relatively new to the x86 server business and faces plenty of competition.
