Red Hat Continues Booming Growth in Fiscal Q1
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Just after we went to press with the prior issue, commercial Linux distributor Red Hat reported its financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2007 ended May 31, and it has turned in another high-growth, high-profit quarter. Red Hat's acquisition of middleware supplier JBoss only closed on June 2, so none of its results are in the numbers for the fiscal first quarter. This is probably a good thing, for now, since JBoss, while growing even more explosively than Red Hat, is not yet profitable. READ MORE >

Transitive Emulator Ports Sparc/Solaris Apps to Linux on Xeon, Itanium

Top 500 Supers: Brace Yourself for Petaflops Systems
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The International Supercomputing Conference was in full swing in Dresden, Germany, just before the holiday, and the Top 500 listing of supercomputers, which is the equivalent of the Billboard chart ranking for popular music, is always the star of any show it is timed to coincide with. Two weeks ago at ISC2006, the situation is no different. Server vendors and their governments are still vying to be on the top of the flops charts, and the academic, government, and private supercomputer centers are still consuming vast amounts of number-crunching power.

Yankee Says Windows Improves and Bests Linux
by Alex Woodie

A recent study by the Yankee Group found that users have experienced considerably less downtime with Windows Server 2003 compared to Windows Server 2000.
