"We now have 53 different certifications on 15 Netfinity models and across
the four [major] distributions of Linux," Figgatt said.

IBM is in the process of certifying more than 100 other Linux applications

IBM's process for testing and certifying Linux applications on Netfinity
servers by going to www.developer.ibm.com.
