"After months of prerelease code availability, IBM today
announced the general availability of Linux for the S/390 mainframe
platform. The company adds System/390 hardware to its list of
supported environments for Linux, completing a range of systems
that extend from Intel laptops to the largest mainframes the
company has ever made."
"Linux for S/390 will be supported by IBM Global Services (IGS)
right alongside the other mainframe operating systems, such as
OS/390 and VM/ESA. IBM is also announcing partnerships with SuSE
and TurboLinux to distribute Linux for S/390 and provide
value-added support for the product. This partnership gives IBM the
Linux credibility and expertise of TurboLinux and SuSE, while
allowing these Linux-oriented companies to reach mainframe-oriented
enterprise customers who might otherwise be inaccessible."
"In addition to Linux itself, IBM will be releasing native
versions of its key middleware and database products for Linux on
S/390 as well, including the client "connector" for DB2 Universal
