IBM hates Linux (by Oracle)--further Linux fragmentation

Not good for the Linux franchise.

RL

This weekend's Herald Tribune-

BOSTON (Reuters) - IBM (IBM.N: Quote, Profile , Research) is not ready
to guarantee that its computer programs are compatible with Oracle
Corp.'s (ORCL.O: Quote, Profile , Research) recently launched version
of the Linux operating system, an IBM spokesman said on Friday.

This means that if IBM software programs turn out to be incompatible
with Oracle Enterprise Linux, then it will be up to Oracle -- and not
IBM -- to resolve the issue, said IBM spokesman Matthew McMahon.

Oracle, which started selling Linux in October, has said its product
is identical to one from Red Hat Inc. (RHT.N: Quote, Profile ,
Research), the No. 1 vendor of the popular open-source operating
system, and will seamlessly run software written for the Red Hat
system.

But financial and industry analysts have said that software buyers
want outside assurances to back up that claim before they will switch
to Oracle.

IBM may one day support Oracle Linux. "We are going to wait and see if
there is traction in the marketplace," McMahon said. "If clients want
it (Oracle), then we will support it."

IBM guarantees its products will work with Red Hat's version of Linux.

"What Red Hat is selling to the customer is peace of mind. Oracle
cannot do that because it is unable to certify comparability," said
Trip Chowdhry, an analyst with Global Equities Research.

It would seem to me that 'not ready to guarantee' is miles from 'hates'.

SO what if a religion fragments into 1000 sects, each incompatible
with the other?  So what if a religion or cult dies?  Life goes
on...yes, indeed it does, with quality Microsoft (TM) products.

No, this is just another attempt by greedy self-serving assholes like
Larry Ellison to screw other people over. Somehow, Larry + dog are
surprised when people don't spend huge amounts of their own money to
help Larry screw them. There's nothing new to see here (everyone
already knows that Larry is an egotictical asshole), move along...

So, Dean G, you think this is directed more towards hurting Oracle?
That's possible, though I don't think they compete.  However, this
recent article says they do, so perhaps you're right in that this is
not really about Linux.

http://www.crn.com.au/story.aspx?CIID=70919&r=rstory

If so, then it's just routine inter-corporate sparring.

If it was about Linux, IBM should have said (IMO) "we'll support any
Linux that is compatible with RedHat, and it's up to Oracle to make
sure their version of Linux is compatible to Redhat's, like they say
it is".  But IBM didn't say that, that's what caught my eye.

Hasta la vista, Linux diehards, live to die another day.

While Red Hat has a very comprehensive training program, Oracle has
not presented the world with the same level or real support for their
"Unbreakable" OS. Phone "support" is one thing, but without
comprehensive end user training, it may simply be a way to drive up
their support revenue at the expense of end-users. IBM probably
doesn't want to be in the middle of such a mess. In many cases, IBM
may be the hardware supplier. With Oracle supplying the software (OS
and DB) and software support, it really is Oracle's responsibility to
deal with compatability issues.

Which gets back to what I said : Oracle seems surprised that other
people aren't just forking the money over for their benefit. If Oracle
wants the support of the Linux community, perhaps they should support
the Linux community as much as Red Hat and IBM have. They don't, and
the results apparently surprise only Larry and you.

No, but after reading the Wiki entry on it, it doesn't seem to overlap
with what Oracle does. It's SQL for mainly mainframes it seems, with
some oddball PC/small systems applications.

Fair enough, that's one take on it--a positive spin on the story for
Linux users.

You overstated your case:   "If Oracle wants the support of the Linux
community,..." LOL!  WHat "support" is that Dean G?  Good will in this
newsgroup?  Or do you seriously think, with time being limited, that
college kids are going to write and debug code for Oracle (or for IBM
for that matter)?  Business is bu$ine$$.  It's all about the Benjamin$
Dean G! It's all about the G's!

That's another reason Linux doesn't have a future long term--it's just
cannibalizing market share from Unix, because the real money is in the
Wintel platform.  Any fool can tell you that, even this one!

Though I did see Dell, a struggling company, will now sell machines
with Linux preinstalled.

Good luck with your career (whatever it may be) and your hobby
(Linux).

If your life is entirely about money, then you are an even sadder and
far more pathic creature than I had originally deemed you to be.

Wintel is just the most expensive platform, and exactly because the
cost benefit ratio is so low, corporations are looking elsewhere.
Fools and their money are soon parted. Not only that, the more
confident they are about making more, the quicker they are parted from
what they have. If you doubt that, then just visit a casino.

Reality is a bit different : casinos are almost sure money for the
casino owners. And the Fortune 500 is looking more and more to Linux
for mission critical roles, with Windows being the relegated to
desktops use for the lowest paid and least educated segments of the
workforce. Oh, and I hear Vista will be great for games, as soon as
someone can work out a decent video driver.

What a turn-around story that will be. Linux saves Dell ! Truth be
told, I don't really like Dell that much. They seem more like the Wal-
mart of the computer world, whereas HP seems more like a Target. Too
bad they gave up PA-Risk for Itanium. I guess the Wintel stratagy
doesn't come with a guarantee.

Hi, Interested in trying Linux? Well you came to comp.os.linux.advocacy for some reason, and you probably won't stay long. Here's a list of Linux distributions to choose from. Ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com Newbie friendly and good support forums. SuSE http://www.novell.com/linux Pay for some support if you're not opposed to spending a little money. Fedora Core http://fedoraproject.org If you're more comfortable with your computer, try this one out. If you get frustrated, don't give up so easy. There is a wealth of information online for whichever distro you choose....

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...

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!

Linux developers hate Linux
Install MonoDevelop. Remember, Suse and Mono, same company. If you install on Windows, you just click and install. Big, bam, done.

Linux Could NOT Have Invented Linux
The current view in Western technology is that Linus Torvalds invented Linux. Nothing could be further from the truth. The technical complexity and useability of Linux make it beyond the capability of what man could produce using the tools available in 1992. My theory is that Ancient Astronauts descended from the sky on 'Chariots of the Gods' and showed Linus *how* to write an Operating System. These alien visitors must have appeared as strange to the young Torvalds, and so he may have mistaken them for carpet vendors. -- w:04 On Tue, 08 Jun 2004 14:28:27 GMT, Erich Von ...

ssh over php from w2k to linux hangs (linux to linux ok)
Hello, I am trying to make some bash-scripts, that are to be executed on remote linux-boxes available to some Windows users over a php-interface. To require no interaction from the part of the windows users, I installed cygwin, generated rsa-keys and copied the public key on the server. I also changed the user, running the apache service appropriately and I added cygwin/bin to this users path. So, executing "ssh user@server something" worked using the cygwin-bash or the windows CLI. However, if I execute a php-script containing a "system" or "proc_open" with th...
