New Server Linux Distribution

| which provides an optimal hosting environment for each customer.  


IBM's System z10 Business Class Offers Mainframe Performance

,----[ Quote ]
| For the operating system, the Business Class mainframe can run either the 
| traditional z/OS operating system or what IBM calls z/Linux, or Linux on 
| System z. The Business Class mainframe will also offer 120GB of main system 
| memory, and IBM will boost that to 248GB in June 2009.   



Attack Unleashed for New Microsoft Mainframe Bug

| running Microsoft's Host Integration Server 2006, used to connect mainframe
| applications to Windows PCs.



Microsoft to IBM: Tolerate PSI Mainframes or Quit Europe

,----[ Quote ]
| If you think Microsoft has an aversion to Article 82 of the European Treaty,
| the anti-monopoly law that forced it to open some Windows server APIs and
| also to live with others' media players on desktops, think again. Microsoft
| is backing Platform Solutions (PSI) in an Article 82 action that could loosen
| IBM's grip on the mainframe. If PSI is given the keys to every glass house in
| Europe, Microsoft will be one of its principal guests. In fact, PSI could get
| more from IBM than it wanted when it first announced mainframe-compatible
| systems.Last November 27, PSI announced that it had raised more than $37
| million in additional capital, and that one of the companies in the deal was
| Microsoft. Other investors in PSI include Intel, Blueprint Ventures, Goldman
| Sachs, InterWest Partners, and InvestCorp.


Enterprise Unix Roundup: EU vs. Microsoft vs. IBM

,----[ Quote ]
| Over on IT Jungle, I just read an interesting story about how Microsoft is
| (by proxy) cleverly using the same law that was just smacked over its head
| for Windows market dominance against IBM's mainframe base in Europe.
| The story, by Hesh Wiener, is a fascinating look into the world of
| litigation-as-business-strategy, and details the complaint filed by Platform
| Solutions (PSI) against IBM for violating Article 82 of the European
| Commission (EC) Treaty. The complaint was filed, according to a Dec. 18
| Reuters story, way back on Oct. 19.
