Metro Link released a software-accelerated version of SGI's OpenGL for Linux. Metro OpenGL (MOGL) is an environment for developing 2-D and 3-D graphics applications. OpenGL runs on a variety of platforms without the need to rewrite applications for each system's graphics driver. Rotating, bouncing blobs can be displayed and interactively controlled on screen via 250 OpenGL routines. Objects can be rendered in wireframe, shaded-solid, and transparent modes–with user-definable textures, surfaces, and other attributes. Metro OpenGL for Linux is US$199.
Evans & Sutherland Computer Corporation (E&S) and Portable Graphics, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of E&S, announced the availability of OpenGL for Linux from E&S. OpenGL for Linux is a software implementation of the OpenGL Sample Implementation from SGI that runs as an extension to the standard X-Windows package on Linux. It can be used to write, compile and run OpenGL applications. OpenGL for Linux passes the OpenGL conformance test suites for all currently shipping servers. A LinkKit is provided to allow users to configure additional extensions and video drivers as needed. E&S Open GL costs US$79.00 plus shipping and handling.

DIOSS Corp. has released Distributed Interface Object Server System (DIOSS) Version 1.0, a development and delivery system for X/Motif applications. DIOSS lets you create X/Motif based applications and does not require linking in X/Motif object code. DIOSS separates the application from the windowing system overhead by providing a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) based interface object background daemon which services all interface creation requests and events (call it a Motif Server).

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
