LINUX HEADWARE FIRM "Red Hat" is fuming at the way that Sun is pitching it's release of Solaris 10 earlier this week.
Though Sun resells Red Hat's software, the firms are growing increasingly hostile as they compete for the same set of customers.
Now Sun has openly said that it sees the new version of Solaris as a tilt at Red Hat which it sees as sitting in the space that it wants to occupy.
Red Hat has seen the moves coming for a while. Its opening shots have been to fly a plane over Sun's Solaris launch with a banner with a banner with the Red Hat logo.

Linux maker Red Hat is warning users about an email that pretends to be an official security advisory but is actually a phishing-type scam that contains links to malicious code. The fake email appears to have been sent from email@example.com and was first spotted on Friday evening with a subject line: "RedHat: Buffer Overflow in 'ls' and 'mkdir'".
Linux vendor Red Hat on Wednesday announced a partner programme that will certify manufacturers of appliances which have been integrated with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This is the latest move in the company's turn-around over embedded Linux: earlier this year it announced a deal with Wind River, a vendor of embedded software, to jointly develop an embedded variant of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Fedora Core 3 Test2 was released today, and so here's a chance to preview the software. I've been eager to try out Gnome 2.8 and KDE 3.3, so I tried to install them on my Core 2 box, which resulted in a severe package dependency crisis, so since Test 2 was released today I figured I would just reformat and install it for kicks, and to get my KDE 3.3. As you have probably already guessed, not much has changed when it comes to the Anaconda installer.
