(Other stories by Dana Gardner, Michael Lattig)
"The infatuation with Linux is spreading like wildfire from Internet service providers to deep into the enterprise, as evidenced by the parade at this week's LinuxWorld Expo of corporate vendors deploying their wares for the open-source operating system."
"New Linux systems are giving businesses the ability to cobble together low-cost Intel-based servers for Internet needs and perform application hosting with a proven level of reliability -- all with a newly available supply of service and support."
"Two database vendors preparing to answer the call for Linux this week are Sybase and Oracle. Sybase will announce at LinuxWorld that it is extending Linux support beyond its SQL Anywhere and Adaptive Server databases to its Adaptive Server Enterprise 11.92, Sybase Enterprise Application Server 3.0, and Replication Server 4.0 products."
