As part of Sun Microsystems’ first CommunityOne, Ian Murdock, Sun’s chief operating system platform strategist and a self-described “Linux guy”, hosted a noteworthy session that explored a curious question: How can we make Solaris a better Linux than Linux? Murdock has a storied history in relation to Linux. A Linux user, developer, and advocate since 1993, he founded Debian in 1993, with the goal of creating a complete operating system around the Linux kernel and expanding Linux to a broader audience.
