Modern datacenters and next-generation IT requirements depend on capable platforms, with open source solutions offering a strong foundation for open hybrid cloud and enterprise workloads. A powerful, unified platform enables enterprises to use a solid foundation to balance demand while utilizing new trends and technologies such as virtual machines and the open hybrid cloud.
Google joins IBM, NEC, Novell, Philips, Red Hat and Sony as a full member of the Open Invention Network open-source and Linux patent protection organization.
Today, Linux rules supercomputing. It wasn't always that way. Here's how Linux moved from being Linus Torvald's hobby operating system to being the OS of choice for high-performance computing.
The release of the latest Linux kernel paves the way for accelerated video playback on modern ATI Radeon cards, as well as additional support for SSD caching to augment performance of slower storage.
The Linux 3.9 kernel brings with it an SSD caching, improved performance for multi-threaded network server applications and a host of other features.
openSUSE, the open source development project of the SUSE Linux distribution, will delay the release of version 12.2 again and top developers want to reorganize the effort to accommodate what they say is a growing community of developers since SUSE was bought from Novell by Attachmate and established as an independent unit.

Red Hat announced certification of SAP applications on its Enterprise Linux 6 and also use of those SAP apps on Linux in Amazon's EC2 cloud.
EMC's multiple petabytes of storage matched with IBM's ability to virtualize thousands of Linux servers with a single zEnterprise server means datacenters with greater performance and smaller footprint.
The Linux-Windows server interoperability pact, originally struck between Microsoft and Novell five years ago, will now run until the start of 2016
Microsoft and SUSE announced they are extending the 2006 Microsoft-Novell Linux patent-protection agreement, and that Microsoft is buying $100 million worth of SUSE Linux Enterprise certificates for its customers.
When Novell dropped Mono, even after its founder created a new company to support it, it looked like it was a dead language walking. Now, with support from SUSE Linux, Mono lives on.
Texas Instruments and Qualcomm, two of the biggest suppliers of ARM-based processors in the smartphone market, have announced chips intended to run Microsoft Windows 8. Their arrival (probably) next year will help answer a number of interesting questions about the relative power, performance, and price of Intel and ARM chips, and the efficiency of modern versions of Windows compared with the Linux-based Google Android operating system.
Under Attachmate, Novell & SUSE are separate divisions and a world apart.
