Sun drops plans for own Linux

Sun Microsystems Inc. is ending a seven-month effort to establish its own Linux distribution, because of reluctance on the part of users to deal with yet another version of the open source OS. Sun said marketing of the Sun Linux 5.0 software that the company announced last August is being curtailed in favor of developing partnerships with other Linux vendors. Sun had positioned its release as a slightly tweaked version of a standard Linux 2.4 kernel. But the company felt that users weren't interested in having to install and manage multiple versions of Linux.
