We love Linux.....
We have been involved quite heavily in porting linux to the PA-RISC
We are releasing a secure version of Linux to be used on vulnerable servers
like web servers etc.
Our new Superdome servers, up to 64 CPUs, up to 200,000 tpm, up to 192 PCI
cards, up to 192Gb RAM can also run Linux. (I really want one..)
We even released Openmail on Linux a couple of years ago and won the product
of the show at the time, and have released the source code since as far as I
On a more local note, some of you may remember the two HP Kayak PCs at the
ILUG stand earlier this year....
Have a look at http://www.hp.com/products1/linux/index.html.
And it's not just 'cos I work for them, you should see Linux on an omnibook
6000, it's great....

Why wouldn't we believe you ? It was on the radio news this morning.

Quite a bit. They're releasing their own distribution with apparently some
proprietary extra security bits. Didn't I read that IBM are releasing their
own distribution too ? This must worry RH some.
HP have also released a home entertainment system which is Linux based.
P.S. Interesting snippet in that NY Times article
particularly a new operating system for computer servers that was developed
by Intel and Hewlett-Packard. Compaq is the other large company that has
announced it plans to use that technology, which will compete with
technologies developed by Sun Microsystems and I.B.M.
So Itanium has now become an operating system or are they referring to
something else entirely ? I presume it's the usual clueless journalist
