Amiga & AROS A few weeks ago, Novell and Red Hat jointly fended off a patent infringement suit thrown their way by a patent troll. The patent in question more or less came down to the concept of virtual desktops - and thanks to Groklaw, several people helped in finding cases of prior art. The most interesting one of all? A carefully restored and working Amiga 1000 demonstrated to the judge and jury.

RE[4]: Dont trust Groklaw FUD

So I have been brainwashed by this guy who is sued by IBM? You claim that PJ, founder of Groklaw, doesnt allow abusive or foul language on Groklaw? But he used no abusive languange, he has shown what he posted on his blog. It was only his side of the story. But you mean we should only listen to IBMs side of the story, not his side? Do you consider that fair? So what are the facts in this story, could you state them? Maybe you have misinterpreted some "facts"?

I mean, it is obvious that the Mainframe software emulator is a severe threat to IBM's Mainframes. Otherwise IBM would not sued him. You can emulate a Mainframe on an x86 server. One modern x86 cpu is 5-10x faster than a Mainframe CPU. The Mainframe CPUs are dog slow. That is why IBM is afraid of TurboHercules. Because it will reveal how slow the Mainframes actually are.
