Linux Receives Support More Rapidly

Mainsoft and IBM will one day unveil their long-anticipated port of .NET Applications to Linux and J2EE. Finally, this important milestone which enables Windows-centric applications to be ‘opened’, becomes a reality.

Mainsoft Corp. and IBM Wednesday announced an effort to work together to extend the Linux ecosystem by helping Microsoft customers move to Linux.

Meanwhile, the word through the grapevine is that another pact will deliver many low-cost Linux workstations.

Computer maker Mirus Innovations LLC and software vendor Linspire Inc. have teamed to offer a line of Linux-based desktop PCs starting at $299.

The pace at which good news for Linux get delivered is encouraging. Later today, an official announcement will be made with regards to Hewlett Packard’s top executive departing from her duty to join Penguin Computing. Keep an eye on the business/technology news.

    I like the look of the low cost linux workstations, just a shame its linspire! Although I guess its best for a more user friendly commercial application!

  2. Roy Schestowitz Says:

    I guess the hardware was tested for Lispire compatibility, but the buyer is free to use whichever distribution takes his/her fancy. There are similar machines in the UK, which sell for roughly the same price and come with the latest of SuSE.
