Sun linux workstations

Unread postby themacosxflies » Sat Apr 24, 2004 1:42 pm

I have read that Sun sells 'huge amounts' of their linux desktop computers, but I can not find them on the Sun site, well, to be honest I did not do a big and deep search.

Sure is that, I read about the Wallmart thing, but also about the Chinese government buying Sun stuff in huge amounts.

Well from what i remember regarding the chinese it was more that they were buying JDS packs which they could then install on their own pc's but i could be wrong
