Red Hat Readies RHEL 5 for March 14 Launch
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The wait is almost over. It may have taken two weeks longer than Red Hat would have liked, but Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the updated version of the company's commercial Linux platform, will be launched along with a bevy of new products and services on March 14. The delivery of RHEL 5, the fourth major commercial server release for Red Hat, will better position its Linux against Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 as well as Windows, Unix, and proprietary platforms.

Novell Gets Pinched By Rising Costs, Falling Sales
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Commercial Linux distributor Novell reported its financial results for its fiscal quarter of fiscal 2007 last week, and the company continues to struggle to boost sales and profits, as it has in many past quarters. In this quarter, the numbers didn't pan out, and Novell got caught in the pinchers of rising costs and falling sales, pushing it to a loss.

Midrange Boxes, Big Iron Drive Server Growth in Q4 2006
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The server market watchers at IDC have built their models of the business for the final quarter of 2006, and this time around, some interesting things seem to have been a-foot as last year drew to a close. IDC reckons that for the first time in a long time, the midrange and high-end server markets are outgrowing the volume server space (which is mostly X64-based machines these days). Moreover, revenue growth far outpaced shipment growth in the fourth quarter of 2006, which is a reverse of the usual trend. READ MORE >
