(Other stories by Lee Copeland)

"IBM Corp. hopes to leverage the channel to succeed in its porting of more than 300 middleware and software products to Windows 2000."

"While it is optimistic about Windows 2000, IBM also supports Linux. IBM's DB2 and Websphere server for Linux are in beta and slated to be available next month, and Lotus Notes/Domino and SecureWay will support Linux by year's end, said company executives. IBM's Professional Support Services also will address core operating-system-level problems for both Linux and Windows 2000."

We are hoping customers will implement Linux with our middleware then scale up to S/390,' he said."
