"Motorola is to ship a high availability version of Linux aimed at carrier grade networking from May. The company's HA Linux will be available on Motorola Intel and PowerPC hardware, and promises 99.999 per cent (five nines) availability."
"It runs on Motorola's CPX8000 family of platforms. These currently use the Lynx OS, but Motorola sees Linux as the 'platform of choice' for new telecommunications applications."
"...by going for Linux, Motorola may be on to a winner at last. It doesn't have OS baggage the way Sun does, so has the opportunity to push high spec Linux servers while Sun continues to circle round the question, apparently facing in several directions at once."
