CEBIT: WIRELESS NET, LINUX, WIN2000 TO TAKE CENTER STAGE

WIRELESS INTERNET, electronic commerce, stripped-down PCs, Linux, and Windows 2000 are some of the themes expected to take center stage at this year's CeBit exhibition, taking place Feb. 24 through March 1 in Hannover, Germany.

With some 7,500 exhibitors spread out over 408,839 square meters of floor space in 26 halls, the show can lay claim to the title of the world's largest IT event. Despite its mammoth size, however, the show maintains a distinctly German flavor. Although the exhibitors come from all over the world, with the Taiwanese contingent topping the list of international exhibitors, more than two-thirds of the 698,000 visitors that attended CeBit last year came from Germany.

RED HAT'S CTO EXAMINES HIS ROLE AND THE FUTURE OF LINUX

Michael Tiemann's early work with GNU software created world-leading technologies, becoming an inspiration to Linus Torvalds and an enabling technology for Linux in 1991. He continues to shape the future of open source today as chief technical officer at Red Hat. Prior to joining Red Hat, Tiemann co-founded and served as acting CTO at Cygnus Solutions, which was acquired by Red Hat in January. Tiemann sat down with Editor at Large Ed Scannell to talk about his work at Red Hat and the issues facing Linux in today's marketplace.

RED HAT'S CHAIRMAN IS CONFIDENT ABOUT FACING OFF AGAINST
THE MICROSOFT JUGGERNAUT

With the formal launch of Windows 2000 last week by the industry's most powerful force, Microsoft, it is conceivable to think that leading members of the Linux OS community might be at least a little edgy. Not Bob Young. As chairman of Red Hat, the leading distributor of Linux, Young remains steadfast in his belief that the momentum his open-source operating system has established will continue unabated despite the media storm that Windows 2000 figures to create. Young sat down with InfoWorld Editor at Large Ed Scannell to discuss the impact Windows 2000 might have, or lack, among users and developers.

MOTOROLA AIMS HIGH AVAILABILITY LINUX AT TELCOS

MOTOROLA'S COMPUTER GROUP in May will begin to ship High Availability Linux, which it calls HA Linux, as a new embedded computing platform for telecommunications providers.

According to Motorola Computer Group, the platform is the first Linux product for carrier-grade networking, wireless, and Internet applications that has high availability needs with little downtime. The product is aimed at operation administration and maintenance platforms, IP (Internet protocol) gateways, gatekeepers, home-location registers, and call servers, the Motorola group said in a statement on Monday.

LINUX STILL NOT READY FOR DESKTOP, SAYS SUSE CEO

HANNOVER, GERMANY -- DESPITE the attention it has received here at the CeBit show, even the staunchest supporters of the Linux operating system concede that it is still a niche product for the desktop market.

One of the biggest obstacles facing Linux is the perceived lack of widely available office applications.

ADIC'S SHARED FILE SYSTEM TO EXTEND SANS TO LINUX

U.S. STORAGE VENDOR Advanced Digital Information (ADIC) is adding support for the Linux operating system in its shared file system CentraVision, the company announced today. The move means that users of Linux servers will be able to use SANs (storage area networks) to share applications data with users of Unix and Windows NT servers.

CentraVision currently supports Microsoft's Windows NT and Silicon Graphics' Unix operating system Irix. ADIC expects to demonstrate CentraVision's Linux support at a number of trade shows in April and plans to release Linux support in the software in May, according to Steve Whitner, ADIC marketing director, speaking in a phone interview Monday. Next up will be support for Sun Microsystems's Unix OS Solaris some time later this year, he added.

SAS BEING PORTED TO LINUX

INSPIRED BY ITS growing acceptance among leading industry players as well as its business partners, the SAS Institute announced Tuesday it will port its flagship data-warehousing and decision-support product over to Linux.

Company officials Tuesday said they will ship a production version of SAS software for Red Hat Linux on Intel hardware by the end of the year. They added, however, that they also will deliver versions of the product for all of the distributions by the major Linux suppliers including Caldera, SuSE, TurboLinux, and Corel.

RED HAT TAKES HEAT OVER CERTIFICATION

PALM DESERT, CALIF. - Criticism of Linux vendor Red Hat for its certification policies ended a debate on Friday called "The Future of the Operating System" here at the System Builder's Summit.

Hosted by a panel of representatives from Red Hat, Caldera Systems, Gartner Group, and Novell, what began as a general overview for the need for more applications to run on the popular open-source operating system closed with heated charges from several audience members who claimed that certification by Linux-vendor Red Hat is both expensive and risky.
