I saw an interesting tidbit in today's LWN viz.
Telia goes for Linux on the S/390. According to Reuters, Telia, the Swedish
telecom and Internet service provider, is replacing 70 Sun Microsystems
servers with one IBM mainframe computer running Linux.
Sounded interesting , so I had a look at the entire release from Reuters at
In the middle of that lies this gem
It is believed to be one of the first implementations of Linux in a
commercial service, and a debut for an Internet service provider.
Where do they get the people ? And of course the sad thing is that that will
be reported, if it's reported at all, verbatim.
Oh - it's time for those of you who think you've been using Linux
commercially for years, and particularly those who work in ISPs and think
that they are using Linux, to give up the pretence, come back to the real
world of 'doze and keep taking the Valium.
