Novell's Messman Commits to Not Mess Up Open Source
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

"New York City in January is like an iceberg, and now I understand the choice of the Linux mascot," quipped Jack Messman, CEO and chairman of newly upstarted Linux player Novell in the opening keynote address at the LinuxWorld trade show in New York this week. In one short year, Novell has gone from being one of the biggest victims of the Linux and open source movements to what will turn out to be one of its biggest and most ardent champions. He laid out the case for open source and its inevitability in his address. READ MORE >


IBM to Pump Up Linux on Power Processors
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

It's been four years now since IBM caught the Linux bug (clearly a flu virus), and Irving Wladawsky-Berger, vice president of technology and strategy at Big Blue and one of the shakers behind the company's move into Linux, reminisced a bit at the LinuxWorld trade show in New York about how the growth rates for Linux shipments and revenues--not to mention some 6,300 enterprise Linux customers, including 200 governments--justified IBM's strategy. Now, IBM appears to want more. It wants Linux to drive sales of its Power-based machines, and it wants Power machines to drive Linux. READ MORE >

HP Takes Away $75 Million in Biz From Sun With Linux
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Hewlett-Packard did not have a lot of news at the LinuxWorld show in New York this week, but executives were on hand to brag about the $75 million in business it has stolen away from rival Sun Microsystems in the Unix business by selling former Sun customers Linux running on ProLiant and Integrity servers. While the amount of money is not a lot for these account wins, they can add up to a bigger piece of the IT budget at these new accounts for HP over time. READ MORE >


SGI Targets Midrange HPC with Linux-Based Altix 350s
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Supercomputer maker SGI may be working on getting a commercial 128-way Itanium-based server out the door for high performance computing (HPC) customers sometime this spring, but it has its sights on the broader market for so-called midrange HPC gear. The high-end of the HPC market gets all the glory, but the money is really made in the midrange. To that end, SGI has rolled out the Altix 350, a dense, midrange supercomputer that is a chip off the current 64-way Altix 3000 block. READ MORE >
