Is SAP R/3 for Linux on the way?

The German newswire service heise.de reported this rumor on October

Original German at: http://www.heise.de/newsticker/data/ju-26.10.98-000/.

John Jesmer has kindly rendered this tranlation for Linux

“According to recent rumors on the Internet, SAP has developed
its Standard Software R/3 for internal use. However, it is not
planning a public release at this time. SAP is, next to Baan and
PeopleSoft, the leading vendor of Standard Software applied to
inventory and accounting systems.”

“Similar rumors about Informix databases last Fall led to a
flood of questions and responses by Informix customers finally
prompting Informix (and ultimately, Oracle and IBM) to stop
wavering and offer Linux versions of its database products. The
next thing we may see might be SAP, Baan and PeopleSoft paying
tribute to the current Linux boom.”
