http://www.sap.com/linux/ Sap has ported to Linux. http://www.hklc.com/menu/156.html A company that makes a CRM app for linux IBM has ported almost all their server software to Linux. A lot of the companies you mentioned are probably tight IBM partners also. If IBM starts doing decent business selling dedicated iSeries for Linux, that they might not see a profit line also? No one said Linux can do everything. It is still relatively young, but every month a new large established company is incorporating Linux into their market strategy. A lot of other companies did the work on Linux to mainframe/iseries with IBM's help. So they atre taking advantage of it and trying to sell more hardware. I haven't heard them say to iSeries customers to switch to Linux. All they have said it "You love the iSeries? Well look what else it can do for ya!" I see it as they are doing two things: 1) Increasing the usefulness of a product you have purchased/going to purchase 2) Adding another tool for their customers/prospective customers. I don't see how this strategy of IBM's can hurt them? What do they really lose if they don't sell a single dedicated Linux iSeries? Nothing, cause I am sure their are customers that are still going to use the tech involved to integrate Linux on their OS/400 just as their are some customers that itnegrate NT with it.
