"Tokyo - The Linux operating system made headway on both
domestic and international fronts last week, as Dell Computer Corp.
and IBM Japan Ltd. said they will install Red Hat Software Inc.'s
version of the operating system in new systems.
And in Houston, Compaq Computer Corp. said it will incorporate
Linux into its Unix strategy and will introduce products and tools
with Tru64 Unix and Linux compatibility.
IBM Japan said it will install Linux in its Pentium III
Xeon-based Netfinity 3000 and 5000 servers, and has plans to
install the open source code OS into its ThinkPad and
IntelliStation systems. In addition, the company has worked with
Intel K.K. to set up a Linux customer support center here.
Intel will take responsibility for ensuring that Linux runs best
on its hardware. That includes tuning the Linux operating system,
middleware and applications to its SIMD Katmai instruction set, as
well as its eight-way symmetric multiprocessing chip set, IBM and
Intel officials said.
