"Just a few weeks after Caldera Systems detailed plans to acquire the server software division and professional services arm of Unix vendor The Santa Cruz Operation (SCO), two other Unix operating system vendors are weighing in with Linux support."

"IBM last week said its forthcoming AIX 5L, which will run on both Intel's IA-64 architecture and IBM's upcoming Power4-based Regatta Unix server fleet, will include Linux APIs and a GNU toolset. The toolset is aimed at enabling developers to build Linux applications and recompile them on AIX."

"Hewlett-Packard took the Linux-over-Unix concept one step further by planning to announce this week an upcoming capability within HP-UX that will allow Linux-based applications to run natively on HP-UX servers running on Intel's IA-64 platform. HP will add a very thin layer,the Linux Runtime Environment,to HP-UX sometime next year, the company says."
