| IBM has seen growth in demand for mainframe applications. ""We are not seeing

| for the z-series." Douglas Nielson, a systems analyst at IBM, says Linux on

| 20% of new mainframe capacity is for Linux workloads." He says many
| businesses already have the IFL processor to allow them to run Linux.
