"First, today's news: Canonical has certified Ubuntu
9.04 Server Edition on Hewlett-Packard's HP ProLiant G6 servers;
Ubuntu is now certified to run on 17 different ProLiant
configurations. I've been expecting this news for several months.
Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth hinted during the Ubuntu 9.04
launch that a Hewlett-Packard server announcement would surface
within a few weeks or months.
"At the time, Shutteworth said Ubuntu 9.o4 had been tested to
run on 45 different server configurations from IBM, Sun
Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Lenovo and other server
"A Closer Look
But what does the HP-Canonical relationship really mean? From my
view, HP is essentially beta testing the Ubuntu Server market...
kicking the tires and going out for a test drive, if you will."
