At LinuxWorld in January 2001, Hewlett-Packard announced full-feature Linux support for 28 PostScript LaserJet and business inkjet printers. Basic support is also available for 16 non-PostScript LaserJet and inkjet printers. Users can access all device configuration options such as duplexing, tray selection and paper handling options. Installation of a Linux printing system upgrade is necessary for full-feature support, available at http://www.hp.sourceforge.net/. All future PostScript HP LaserJet printers will come with full-feature Linux support when introduced to market.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
