THE LATEST IN LINUX FROM INFOWORLD:

* India-based Web site offers raft of free OSes
* Benefits for those looking forward to Linux growth on midtier
* IBM extends Linux support to ThinkPad portables
* IBM's Monterey claims success with Merced

=======================================================

INDIA-BASED WEB SITE OFFERS RAFT OF FREE OSES

The free software movement got another small boost this week as an India-based group launched a new Web site offering users worldwide a host of different operating systems and their accompanying documentation, including Linux.

The FreeOS.com site, based in Mumbai, India, which staunchly opposes the time-honored and lucrative practice of charging for operating systems, offers not just the product but free documentation for at least 11 different operating systems, including Linux which is heavily documented, company officials noted.

BENEFITS FOR THOSE LOOKING FORWARD TO LINUX GROWTH ON MIDTIER

THERE'S NO DOUBT that the Linux operating system has made significant inroads at companies big and small. "The operating system that could" has already proven reliable for a myriad of server-based tasks.

In October of 1998, I wrote in this column that more application development tools were needed for Linux to make it to corporate desktops. It seems my wish has been granted. During the last year, a multitude of open-source and commercial application development tools for Linux have arrived enforce. And many more are on the horizon.

IBM EXTENDS LINUX SUPPORT TO THINKPAD PORTABLES

Already firmly committed to Linux on its server platforms, IBM this week shored up support for the open source operating system on its client machines, announcing its ThinkPad 600 is now the first laptop certified to run Red Hat's version of Linux.

Red Hat officials have confirmed that the ThinkPad 600 has passed all of their tests and met all their necessary requirements, and is now the first notebook system to make its Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).

IBM'S MONTEREY CLAIMS SUCCESS WITH MERCED

While Intel's IA-64 chip is still a year away from being a commercial reality, IBM and other members of the Monterey/64 consortium will ignite the operating systems wars for the chip when they announce Friday they have an early version of their operating system working on the chip.

IBM successfully booted a Merced-based IA-64 system running Monterey/64 this past Monday at an Intel lab in Dupont, Wash. and did so without the use of a software emulator, according to company officials. Consortium officials claim this marks the first time a Unix operating system is up and running on the long-awaited 64-bit chip.

COREL AND BORLAND BAND FOR LINUX

MIAMI BEACH, FLA. - Corel and Inprise will collaborate on development of Linux products, including Corel's office applications and Inprise's application development tools, the chief executives from both companies announced today. The accord between the companies also calls for joint marketing and distribution efforts, the officials said.

"The key thing about Linux is that it's all about freedom," said Michael Cowpland, Corel's president and CEO, during his keynote address at Comdex Miami '99 this afternoon. "The time to get into Linux is now."

LINUX GETS NOD WITH BORLAND TOOLS SUPPORT

Inprise this week will announce that its Borland Delphi and CBuilder tools will soon support Linux, enabling developers familiar with the tools to build native Linux applications and for Windows applications built with them to be ported to Linux relatively easily.

The arrival in mid-2000 of the Linux versions of Delphi and CBuilder will follow the arrival in the first quarter of Borland JBuilder for Linux, a Java development tool.

RED HAT REVENUE INCREASES 95 PERCENT IN SECOND QUARTER

Despite posting a $3.1 million loss in its first public earnings report covering its second fiscal quarter, Red Hat Software on Wednesday said it saw revenue increase 95 percent from the same period last year.

Red Hat, the Linux software vendor that went public in August, showed revenue of $4.4 million for its second fiscal quarter ending Aug. 31. That was an increase of 95 percent from $2.3 million in revenue in the same quarter a year ago.

IBM PUTS LINUX ON LAPTOP

ALREADY FIRMLY committed to Linux on its server platforms, IBM this week shored up support for the open-source operating system on its client machines, announcing its ThinkPad 600 is now the first laptop certified to run Red Hat's version of Linux.

Red Hat officials have confirmed that the ThinkPad 600 has passed each of their tests and met all of Red Hat's necessary requirements and is now the first notebook system to make its Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).

COREL AND LINUX
As the Linux movement continues to gather momentum, Corel is excited about the tremendous potential this open source operating system (OS) has to offer. While it is not seen as a replacement for Windows , Linux has the unique ability to go beyond the "one size fits all" mold to offer an OS which can be tailored to the individual needs of the user.

RED HAT ROLLS OUT USER-FRIENDLY LINUX UPDATE

Driven by the wish lists of its corporate users, Red Hat Software formally announced Monday its 6.1 version of Linux, which features a much-improved installation process, systems management features such as load balancing, and a more efficient way to get online updates to the open-source operating system.

With Linux attracting an increasing number of novice users, Red Hat officials felt it was mandatory to offer a graphical-based installation procedure that was simpler for users installing the operating system either using CD-ROMs or doing so over the Web.

SUN GOES AFTER LINUX WITH COMMUNITY-SOURCE SOLARIS

Sun Microsystems has decided to make publicly available the source code of one of its crown jewels -- the Unix-based Solaris operating system -- under what it calls a "community-source license," a company official said Friday.

A Sun spokesperson in the company's U.K. office confirmed the contents of a report in Friday's Wall Street Journal, saying that Sun will allow programmers to download the source code and make any changes in the Unix-based Solaris as long as bugs are reported back to the company.

LINUS TORVALDS SAYS OPEN SOURCE NOT A GUARANTEE OF SUCCESS

NEW YORK -- In a question-and-answer session here at Internet World Expo on Wednesday, Linux inventor Linus Torvalds chided competitors Microsoft. and Sun Microsystems.

Torvalds said Sun's recent half-step towards making its Solaris operating system open-source will not be effective.

IBM READIES SPRUCED-UP APPLICATIONS SUITE FOR NT

IBM this Friday will release a refreshed version of its server-based application suite for Windows NT, which will include LDAP directories featuring new synchronization agents, new sample applications, and the latest versions of the suite's core applications.

The updated suite contains Version 6.1 of DB2, MQSeries 5.1, and Lotus Domino 5.0. The new sample applications include an intranet-based application aimed at human resources departments that helps them better manage employees. Other sample applications include ones for product registration, product services, and customer relationship marketing.

LOTUS PORTS DOMINO 5.0 TO LINUX

ALTHOUGH Lotus Development's Domino makes it possible to use the Notes development environment to develop and host Web applications that offer access to dynamic data and applications residing on a Notes server, it previously required a substantial infrastructure investment that was cost prohibitive for some companies. Now, following up on its recent announcement to port Domino, Release 5.0, to Linux, Lotus has made available a sneak preview download of its popular messaging server for the Linux platform.

Although this is a very early preview release and there is no definitive release date or pricing available, Domino for Linux aims to provide an affordable foray for smaller companies looking to adopt a groupware messaging strategy. Larger companies seeking to inexpensively improve redundancy and reliability through the addition of inexpensive servers will also benefit from this recent porting. In the past, Domino has required either a Sun server or the purchase of extra client-access licenses in addition to Notes licenses for Windows NT implementations. With this porting to the Linux operating system, Lotus affords businesses a Unix-like stability with the free Linux OS, without imposing costly NT licensing.

EMBEDDED SYSTEMS TAKE CENTER STAGE
AS INTEREST IN HANDHELD DEVICES GROWS

INTEREST IN EMBEDDED systems is exploding now that there is a fast-growing market for handheld computers, intelligent devices, network computers, and the like. That's one reason why I was excited to go to the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose, Calif., last week.

Another was nostalgia. The first programming job I had back in the early 1980s was to write software for embedded systems. We didn't call them embedded systems at the time. As far as we were concerned we were building custom dual Z80 computers with some specialized hardware for digital signal processing.
