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.

Probably a lot more easily than Windows. Esoteric display hardware seems to be a Linux specialty.

Did you know that the MPlayer video player comes with built-in output drivers for things like Project Blinkenlights? (Installation art which turns office buildings into giant pixel grids) ...or aalib and libcaca? (Real-time rendering of video to ASCII art)

Yes you can run Linux on super domes... Now future titanium support is dwindling from red hat and Suse but it's still supported.

Not sure if it will make it the super dome 2's but that probably more an issue with the isv's dropping titanium support in the future. In the mean time however rhel, suse, ubuntu and even debian I'd supported on most if not all proliants.

HP internally allows usnto use Linux versus windows for our daily pcs etc....

Heck most of our software has windows and Linux versions....

Is this a trick question? Yes.

The Superdome 2 currently only supports HP-UX but you can bet Linux support will be available by the end of year. In fact I'd put money on it.
