Red Hat Stresses Security, Rolls Out Certificate System
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Commercial Linux distributor Red Hat will today complete its Netscape hat-trick, which instead of the expected three wins will only have two. That would be the re-commercialization and open sourcing of the former the Netscape Directory Server, which was released in June as Red Hat Directory Server, and today's re-launching of the Netscape Certificate Management Server, which makes its debut at the LinuxWorld trade show as the Red Hat Certificate System.

Server Makers Push Linux As Linux Pulls Them
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The bi-annual LinuxWorld trade show is under way this week in San Francisco, and once again the major platform makers are swearing their fealty to Linux and trying to figure out any angle they can to use Linux as a lever to wrest sales away from their competition and money out of their customer bases. The Linux market has largely proven itself (even if it is still dwarfed by Windows and Unix), and now the major server makers are getting down to the brass tacks of marketing as well as broadening and deepening their support of Linux on their platforms.

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Scalix, a provider of Outlook-compatible e-mail and calendaring client and server software for the Linux platform, announced a new freeware version of its program, called Scalix Community Edition, yesterday at the LinuxWorld trade show in San Francisco. The move demonstrates that Scalix has come to the same conclusion many other software vendors have of late: The quickest way to boost an installed base and get word-of-mouth marketing and thereby improve the prospects for long-term success is to give its software away and then try to convert customers to a richer, for-fee version later.

SGI Goes All the Way With Transitive Emulator
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Back in May, server and workstation vendor Silicon Graphics became the first company to openly use the QuickTransit hardware virtualization product from a relatively unknown startup called Transitive to support Unix applications on a non-Unix platform. Specifically, SGI licensed the QuickTransit technology to allow Irix Unix applications to run on its Linux-Itanium line of Prism workstations. Last week, SGI went all the way, and has licensed the technology to allow Irix applications to run on its Altix line of Linux-Itanium servers. READ MORE >
