Red Hat to Deliver Linux for IBM’s S/390 Mainframe

Red Hat announced the general availability of Red Hat Linux for S/390, the latest version of its operating system for the enterprise IBM mainframe. This new version enables Red Hat to fulfill its commitment to extend the scalability of its Linux operating system to run on the smallest of handheld devices to the largest of enterprise mainframes. Previously, Red Hat had announced its delivery of open source software solutions, services and support for IBM’s entire eServer product line. In the meantime, in an effort to increase the number of programs available for its relatively unknown iSeries line of special-purpose servers, IBM is courting Linux programmers by letting them tap into an iSeries server over the Internet.
