Dan York gives a summary of Linux-related events at this year's CeBIT.

"Welcome to CeBIT 1999, where the penguin rules! The big story from this huge trade show is Linux - who is supporting it, who is going to be supporting it, who is using it, and who isn't. It has been a very successful show for Linux!"

"Linux received several awards during the course of the show."

"By far the largest Linux announcement at the show was SAP's announcement that it's R/3 software would now run on Linux. This fact was broadcast as a case in point that Linux is "ready for the enterprise" and generated a tremendous amount of media attention. SAP also had demo stations for SAP on Linux running in the booths of partners scattered all over the show, so it was hard to miss the fact that they were now on Linux."
