CNET News.com: Red Hat, Oracle to promote beefed up Linux version

“Red Hat will update several features of Linux to make it better

version, the companies said today.”

“The work will help bring several high-end features to an
upcoming version of the Linux operating system from Red Hat.
However, development of many of those features is already under way
at Red Hat and other companies.”

Among the improvements: software to run Java programs, the

chips.
