C-FORGE HELPS HAMMER OUT LINUX DEVELOPMENT

As the popularity of Linux continues to rise, many companies are looking for new tools that run on the upstart operating system, especially in the application development arena. Integrated development environments (IDEs) that run on Linux are becoming more commonplace, but few support as many languages or run on as many Linux flavors as Code Forge's C-Forge.

C-Forge is a powerful IDE that can enhance the ability of your developers to provide quality applications at a cost-effective price. Developers can take comfort in knowing that the product includes proven, open-source external components such as the GNU C Compiler for compiling and the Data Display Debugger for debugging.

LINUX TAKES ON WINDOWS, UNIX IN THE ENTERPRISE

Linux continues to gain momentum among business users large and small, and it may sustain that growth during the next 12 to 18 months as users exercise caution about implementing Windows 2000.

A full 13 percent of respondents to an International Data Corp. survey in the United States and Canada said they are now using Linux. IDC released the results of the survey of 788 user sites last week.

MOMENTUM BEHIND LINUX CONTINUES TO BUILD, IDC SAYS

Linux is continuing to gain momentum among both large and small business users, and may sustain that growth with the cautious acceptance of Windows 2000 during the next 12 to 18 months, according to a study released Tuesday by market research firm International Data Corp. (IDC).

In a survey conducted among 788 user sites in the United States and Canada, 13 percent of the respondents said they are now using Linux. In a similar study released two years ago, IDC was unable to report any conclusive findings because so few respondents were using the open-source operating system.

SCO LOOKS TO AID BUSINESSES WITH LINUX DEPLOYMENTS

Attempting to help enterprise-class Linux users
make better choices in setting up and managing
open-source environments, SCO's Professional
Services division on Monday unveiled a series
of Linux-based support services.

The new services, which company officials said represents the next step in its strategy to support the network computing model, include Linux Audits. Linux Audits will help users better plan and price their individual deployments, configuration management and maintenance, consulting and technical support, and custom engineering, SCO officials said.

COMPAQ'S DUMP OF NT ON ALPHA MAY HELP LINUX

Users and employees who were banking on the success of Windows NT in Compaq's Alpha processor appear to be the losers of Compaq's decision to halt development of Windows on Alpha, but the move could further open the enterprise door for Linux.

Because of Compaq's decision to end Alpha support for 32-bit Windows NT 4.0, as well as 64-bit Windows projects, Microsoft last week followed suit and dropped its Windows development efforts for the Alpha architecture.

LOTUS NOTES/DOMINO UPGRADE WILL ADD XML

Lotus Development will build native Extensible Markup Language (XML) storage, Windows and Office 2000 integration, and Linux versions of its Notes and Domino products in a series of point upgrades to its Release 5 (R5) lines, culminating in the arrival in mid-2000 of a new full edition, code-named R-Next, Lotus officials said last week.

The current R5 version of Notes/Domino, which arrived in the second quarter, will be improved by a richer, browserlike desktop with enhanced searching. The Domino server component will gain additional knowledge management attributes via XML and added scalability to meet the needs of the nascent application service provider industry, according to Lotus, an IBM division.

LOTUS AND HP PREVIEW WARES FOR THE OPEN-SOURCE PLATFORM AT LINUXWORLD

A few weeks ago I set forth my hopes for the August LinuxWorld Expo. (See Down to the Wire, Aug. 9). The top three items I hoped to hear more about were enterprise directory services based on Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), fail-over clustering, and Lotus Notes. I also expected to witness a friendlier attitude toward using Linux on the desktop.

It turns out I was disappointed only with regard to enterprise directory services. I don't want to dismiss the importance of Novell Directory Services for Linux. But so far I've heard nothing but rumors regarding what I'm really hoping will emerge -- LDAP-based Linux directory services. They are good rumors from reliable sources. But anyone who runs his or her business on rumors or press releases is asking for trouble, so I won't elaborate on what I've heard just yet.
