Linux While at the HP Technology Forum 2010, a particular breakout session stood out in that it was all about Linux. In fact, I've stolen the title of the presentation and made it the name of this article. Bdale Garbee, a very comprehensive and impressive individual (also the HP Open Source & Linux Chief Technologist), gave a talk on the basics of Linux and HP's involvement in it.

Thought HP had a Linux once...

It was HP Linux and came on Intel ix86 - then they dumped it.

Also, both Red Hat and Microsoft have specified that they will no longer support Itanium - which strips out two of the major operating systems for HP Integrity Virtual Machines... That leaves OpenVMS and HP-UX for HP IVMs.

I don't see HP providing an enterprise Itanium Linux any time soon - and expect that Intel server based Linux will continue as before.
