"BASED ON THE enthusiastic response from corporate customers the last two months, IBM deepened its commitment to Linux on Friday with the announcement of a pilot project to work with selected users and developers to create applications that exploit its S/390 mainframe."
"Big Blue said it will work with... users and developers in its new e-Transactions "think tanks," which open Friday in New York and France, where they can develop and test their applications."
"Users will be able to set up a Linux partition on the mainframe, making it easier to import both Linux and Unix applications directly into the OS/390 environment, Wladawsky-Berger said."
