It may have Microsoft worried, but other computer giants are queuing up to support Linux. Latest to join the fray is Sun, which is porting its Java Development Kit to the open sourcecode operating system.
Sun, which has already announced its intention to port its Solaris operating system to Linux, said its JDK 1.2 will ship in a Linux flavour.
The JDK, which includes key Java technologies, such as the Java Virtual Machine, and class libraries, will let developers build applications that run on Linux.
Recent companies to announce support for Linux include Oracle, Informix, Sybase, IBM, Netscape, and Hewlett Packard.
