Solaris: Sun's Solaris 10 to Run Linux Apps, Too

"Sun Microsystems will build software into its forthcoming Solaris 10 version of Unix to run Linux applications unchanged.

The software, called Project Janus, will work on servers using 'x86' chips such as Intel's Xeon and Advanced Micro Devices' Opteron, said Ann Wettersten, Sun's vice president of systems software product marketing. She spoke at a panel discussion held at its offices here in conjunction with the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo. The software intercepts a program's communications with Linux and translates them into communications with Solaris.

Janus isn't an 'objection neutralizer' that might make life easier for Linux users planning to move to Solaris, but it's not likely to trigger such a move, said D.H. Brown analyst Tony Iams. 'I don't see it opening up a new wave of users. It smoothes the path for those already considering a move to Solaris.'"
