"Linux and Windows advocates can momentarily set aside their
differences as messaging software developer International Messaging
Associates launches the beta version of its latest product,
Internet Exchange Messaging Server 5. Internet Exchange 5 supports
distributed computing environments and runs extremely well on mixed
Linux and Windows platforms."
"Currently, we are working on providing support for several
Linux distributions," said Tim Kehres, IMA Managing Director. These
Linux distributions include RedHat, SuSE, VALinux, Turbo Linux,
Caldera, among others."
"According to Kehres, the dramatic increase of Linux shipment
from 1998 to 2000 and the dominance of Windows NT in the market
account for the continued growth opportunities available in the
server-operating environment. These two operating environments
control 60% share of the worldwide server market for the previous
periods. Projections of a steady 16% increase encourage developers
to continue providing dynamic products for this market."
