IBM, Red Hat sign bundling deal
Historically, Power-based servers have run IBM's AIX version of Unix and its OS/400 operating system for midrange servers, but the company began an aggressive push for Linux for Power chips this year. The agreement means that Red Hat's Linux will be available for all Power-based servers, including the dual-processor JS20 blade server. Those blades currently support Novell's SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 and a variant sold by Turbolinux.
