IBM is about to step in to help Sun get its JavaOS operating system out the door, according to US reports, which claim that IBM is offering its 2,400 Java developers to help make JavaOS more robust and stable.
Sun would not comment on the reports. "IBM is one of 40 JavaOS licensees," a Sun representative told 'VNU Newswire'. "IBM does offer feedback on the operating system, as do the other licensees. But further than that, we have nothing to announce at this moment."
However, the spokesperson did suggest that there might be an announcement at next month's Java One conference in San Francisco.
IBM is working on a version of its Network Station that uses JavaOS.
