"Linus Torvalds and... followers... are trying to evolve Linux from a Web-server platform into a full-fledged solution for the enterprise."
" 'The kernel is going to add improvements for enterprise customers, including better SMP support,' said David Sifry, co-founder and chief technology officer at Linuxcare... 'Big [enterprise resource planning] systems don't run on distributed networks of computers, but on SMP systems running four, eight or more processors. ... But [Linux] 2.4 will bring us improvements on processing for the low end of that high-end range,' Sifry said. "
"These developments, made possible by kernel improvements, likely will help dispel the notion that Linux is not ready for corporate prime time, advocates hope."
