"Red Hat will update several features of Linux to make it better suited to e-commerce jobs, and Oracle will help promote the version, the companies said today."
"The work will help bring several high-end features to an upcoming version of the Linux operating system from Red Hat. However, development of many of those features is already under way at Red Hat and other companies."
"Among the improvements: software to run Java programs, the ability to address larger amounts of memory, a "journaling file system" to help Linux computers recover from crashes faster, and an update to Linux to get it to run on Intel's upcoming 64-bit chips."
