Sun's upcoming version 10 of its Solaris X86 operating system will run Linux applications natively.
The development, known as Project Janus, will allow Linux applications to run on Solaris out of the box, thus piggy-backing on the increasing number of programs being written for the open source OS. Sun hopes that this strategy means that Solaris won't be left behind in the rush to Linux.

However, Sun is hoping the power of its operating system which can run on cheap x86 boxes just like Linux will attract customers that can benefit from the economies of developing apps and administering systems using the same tools and skill sets within a mixed Solaris/Linux environment.

John Loiacono, VP for software at Sun, said: 'Our strategy has always been to offer to provide the very best interoperability for heterogeneous environments. Now customers can leverage all the breakthrough attributes of the Solaris 10 operating system with existing investments in the Linux applications at a price lower than what they are paying for Linux. There is no longer a reason to make sacrifices when choosing between Linux and Solaris.'

Project Janus is designed for complete compatibility with Red Hat's Enterprise product line.
