Sun woos Linux distros with bundle deals

,----[ Quote ]
| The goal is for distros to come with Sun's open source Java Enterprise
| Edition project Glassfish, the NetBeans development framework, and the Java
| Standard Edition project OpenJDK. *
|
| Sun is reaching out to Debian, after parts of Glassfish began showing up in
| the distro - Sun would, obviously, like to see all of Glassfish ship with
| Debian. *
|
| Sun is also working to build on early work with Ubuntu. As of now, OpenJDK is
| available in the Hardy Heron release of Ubuntu.
