Company without a name unveils mainframe Solaris

,----[ Quote ]
| z/VM is one of the ways that IBM and its partner commercial Linux
| distributors - Red Hat and Novell - support Linux on the mainframe. But Linux
| also runs natively on top of the Processor Resource/Systems Manager (PR/SM)
| hypervisor that is nearly two decades old and that supports z/OS, Linux,
| z/VM, z/VSE, and TPF operating systems.

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.
