"Just recently Caldera Systems, Inc. acquired much of the Santa Cruz Operation, Inc. creating the Open Internet Platform while Oracle announced its plans to support Linux by releasing an enterprise-level application server for Linux, the Oracle Internet Application Server 8I(iAS)."

"It seems that more and more of the larger coorperations are delving into Linux as fast as they can port their products. What kind of impact will this have on the growth and expansion of Linux and the Linux community?"

"The first thing that comes to mind is that a large, if not the largest, Database Management Systems organization, Oracle, begins to create its solid foundation in the Linux world. With this in mind, I believe many current organizations which utilize the Database giant, Oracle, will change their DBMS servers into Linux with Oracle 8I(iAS). This will, in return, create more jobs and fuel the current Linux and enterprise-level Linux development process and strategy."
