I'm pretty sure that Sun is 100% committed to Linux - some of our
customers have asked for it, and we'll continue to provide it. However,
I would imagine we'll always be pushing Solaris for mission critical
deployments. Solaris will be open sourced before the end of the year

Solaris - the desktop will be available with both.
