BIG BLUE BACKS LINUX

Posted at Jun 05, 2000 04:58 PM Pacific

SAN DIEGO -- IBM Monday reaffirmed its commitment to Linux, particularly in the area of clustered servers, here at the third annual SP World 2000 conference.

Although Big Blue has no intention of abandoning AIX, its Unix platform, David Gelardi, the director of benchmarking and solution initiatives for the RS/600 brand server group, said that "all Linux decisions [from IBM] appear to be based on a when, not an if, scenario."

LINUX WORKS ITS WAY TOWARD PRIME TIME

Posted at Jun 02, 2000 11:21 AM Pacific

LONDON -- IN the last 12 months, Linux has become less of a buzzword and more of a reality, with companies ranging from IBM to Silicon Graphics throwing weight behind the open-source operating system. However, it is still struggling to enter the mainstream arena, according to users and Linux professionals here at Linux Expo 2000.

Although the operating system has become a real alternative for the server market with vendors offering it on a range of higher-end machines, the consensus here on the show floor was that there are still interface and application issues that keep it off the desktop.

LINUX STRUGGLES TO GET BEYOND THE WEB

Posted at Jun 01, 2000 09:02 AM Pacific

LONDON -- BEHIND the scenes, much of the Internet is run on open-source platforms, including the Linux operating system. But bringing Linux over the divide to in-house corporate use still remains the largest problem Linux companies face, according to Larry Augustin, president and chief executive officer of VA Linux Systems.

"If you're using the Internet today, you're using open-source software; you're using Linux," Augustin said in a keynote here Thursday at the European Linux Conference.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

"The fact is there is a lot of Cobol code, and not everything can be rewritten in Java. IT managers are starting to look very seriously at resources and do not want to waste time trying to rebuild stuff that took years to write."

--Tracy Corbo, an analyst at Hurwitz Group, in Framingham, Mass.
