“The OpenPower program offers free remote access to servers running 64-bit Linux on POWER5 processors. In Part 1 of the Taking OpenPower for a spin series, author Peter Seebach introduces the process of getting access to a system and compiling applications for it, both as 32-bit and 64-bit applications. He pays particular attention to issues unique to ‘guest’ software development without root privileges – something most Linux users have never had to do.”
