Google distribuirà sistemi operativi e software di Sun Microsystem. Vista la capità distributiva di Google, i successi di software come Google Earth, Picasa, Gmail e compagnia bella, ho l’impressione che l’amico Bill dovrà guardare con un occhio Mountain View e con l’altro Cupertino.
Oct 4 (Reuters) – Sun Microsystems
Inc. and Google Inc. on Tuesday said they had
agreed to a multi-year pact to distribute Sun’s software
technologies that offer a potential alternative to Microsoft
Corp.’s dominance of business users’ desktops.
Sun and Google, a leading Web search company, said they
would jointly promote Java Desktop and Open Office, Sun’s
operating system and office productivity software systems.
“Working with Google will make our technologies available
more broadly, increase options for user, lower barriers, and
expand participation worldwide,” Scott McNealy, chief executive
of Sun, said at a joint news conference in Silicon Valley.
