TechWeb looks at IBM's LCDS: the program under which developers can gain access to an account on a mainframe. Though IBM's struggling to keep up with demand, says the review, the service is worth it:
"The Linux development community has already taken a liking to the program, and the enrollment numbers are impressive. Unfortunately, IBM has struggled to keep up with the demand because the program requires that each developer be screened and assigned his or her own virtual Linux machine with a dedicated IP address for a limited time. Increasing the resources used to manage the program should help--impatient developers will only wait so long.
