Sun Certifying Ubuntu

Sun is Making Sure Its Java Programming Language, Tools and Java Server are Compatible with Heron

Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth has been telling Reuters that Sun is in the process of certifying Ubuntu on some of its low-end and mid-size hardware.

The code it’s certifying is Hardy Heron, the Ubuntu 8.04 rev that’s due out later this month.

Sun told the wire service that it’s making sure its Java programming language, tools and Java server are compatible with Heron.

Sun also plans to sponsor the Ubuntu Live conference this summer.
