"Oracle, IBM, Sybase among those nowgoing beyond just porting their software"

"This week at the Linux World Expo in San Jose, many vendors that once offered only betas of their software ported to Linux with little or no technical support will line up to provide concrete information about their products.

Oracle... will announce a business unit dedicated to developing and supporting products on Linux... Linux version of its browser-based WebDB data reporting tool... Developer programming tools for Linux... Support for Extensible Markup Language on Linux...

Sybase... will offer technical support for Linux versions of its Adaptive Server Enterprise, Enterprise Application Server, Replication Server and SQL Anywhere..."

"Vendors have seen real demand for products that run on Linux and are continuing to pour hardware and software into the Linux market. IBM plans include a new entry-level Netfinity server with 90 days free support for any of the four major Linux distributions... helping port SAP AG's R/3 to Linux and that Hill House Hammond, a British insurer, is buying 290 Netfinity servers to run Linux-based applications."
