Sun Microsystems Incorporated has plans, called Project Indiana, to revamp Solaris, one of the main varieties of the Unix family of operating systems, known for their ability to safely and securely handle major computing tasks rather than for ease of use. The latter is, however, what the company would like to improve, by incorporating key pieces of rival Linux software. The move could result in better support from developers who have massed behind Linux. The company hopes to improve hardware support for the OS and essentially make Solaris more popular. Sun is known for its business computers that can handle major corporate loads.
