Ten years of IBM mainframe Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in February 1999, IBM announced it 
| would work with Red Hat to support Linux. 
| By May 2000, Linux moved from being an 
| experiment on mainframes to being a fully 
| supported option. And in 2001, IBM 
| announced it was spending a billion bucks 
| that year on Linux. It wasn't that big an 
| expense; as Bill Zeitler, IBM's senior 
| vice president and group executive for 
| eServer at the time, explained, "We've 
| recouped most of it in the first year in 
| sales of software and systems."

Evolution of Linux computing and its implications

,----[ Quote ]
| Today Linux is acknowledged to be the 
| ideal operating system amongst programmers 
| and application intense users. This is not 
| to say that UNIX solutions have developed 
| problems, but simply that Linux continues 
| to be increasingly capable of doing the 
| task that has typically been expected of 
| Unix, and in many instances does so more 
| effectively and efficiently.

| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!
