Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Linux is expected to receive another major boost next week when
several key hardware vendors step up their support for the
open-source operating system at the LinuxWorld conference in San
"In fact, hardware vendors will likely dominate the show.
Dell Computer Corp. CEO Michael Dell is scheduled to deliver the
opening keynote address, and IBM, Hewlett-Packard Co. and
Sunnyvale, Calif.-based VA Linux Systems Inc. all are due to make
major Linux-related announcements."
"While IBM and, to a lesser extent, Dell have increasingly been
profiling themselves as big Linux players over the past two years,
HP's support has been more low-key thus far. That's expected to
change at LinuxWorld, where the company plans to make a major
commitment to supporting the operating system across virtually all
its product lines."
