"The Ubuntu project last week announced that IBM has validated
the year-old Linux distribution's version 5.04 for use with its DB2
Universal Database, bringing together a database designed to
automate many time-consuming tasks with an operating system billed
as easy-to-install and even easier to use.
"IBM's validation comes on the heels of the release of Ubuntu's
server version in October and in advance of the enterprise edition
planned for release next April. The release is expected to be the
base for further certifications, said Malcolm Yates, strategic
alliance and partner manager for Ubuntu and the project's corporate
sponsor, Canonical Ltd.
