EDB Implements Red Hat Solutions for the Reliability of In-House Mainframe

,----[ Quote ]
| “There are clear advantages to mainframe computing including high 
| reliability, security and resource savings in the amount of energy and 
| cooling capacity used to run an application,” said Helge Forberg, section 
| chief for Application, Automation and Support Systems at EDB Business 
| Partner.    


HP buys EDS: You fools! You fools!

,----[ Qoute ]
| Sure Compaq may have worked out in the long run, but people who argue this 
| seem to skip answering the questions: "Did HP really get anything from buying 
| Compaq?" and "Couldn't HP have developed its hybrid PC sales model without 
| Compaq?" Seems to me, HP just wasted 25-billion big ones on Compaq.    


HP CTO of Linux and FOSS:

Bdale Garbee: A fascinating 'open source celebrity' (video)

,----[ Quote ]
| Let's get the first Bdale question out of the way right now: no, he didn't 
| sell half the vowels in his name. His birth name was Barksdale, later 
| shortened to B'dale, then to Bdale. The next thing you notice (in person) 
| about Bdale Garbee is his size. He's a very large person.   


Another takeover on the way?

Meet Karl Paetzel, HP marketing manager for Linux and open source (video)

,----[ Quote ]
| Karl Paetzel is quoted frequently about Hewlett-Packard's ever-increasing
| Linux and open source efforts, which now include open source licensing
| detection and governance tools. Here's a chance to see and hear him a little
| more "up close and personal" than in a traditional text interview.


HP Media Vault 2100 Linux Server Reviewed: One Kick-Ass Little Penguin

,----[ Quote ]
| In the end, this product isn't just another NAS, but a bold statement that HP
| is making, that it doesn't have to be saddled by the rough riders of Redmond
| when it can build (license?) its own practically identical box at a lower
| cost. Now I know that there are some things that you can only do with a
| PC-like server running a full OS, but honestly, what are they? I mean, do
| most people, even die-hard server-needers, give a crap? I want to know from
| you folks: Why bother with Windows Home Server when the Linux-based
| alternatives are on the surface equally friendly, equally powerful and—oh
| yeah—half the cost?
