Some of you may have seen this week that IBM is touting Linux on System p as a prime server consolidation platform. The announcement includes new software from IBM that allows x86 Linux applications to run natively on the System p without having to port or recompile the applications using Chiphopper.
My question is: Why just System p and not System i as well? Maybe they don’t see the market for Linux on System i as there is on System p. Are there any System i junkies out there who would want this feature?
