Android applications are developed specifically for Android OS devices and are available in the Android "Market", preinstalled on most Android devices, allowing users to browse and download apps published by third-party developers.
Beginning in September 2011, Linux Journal began offering a custom Android app. The app itself is free to all and includes one sample issue of the magazine as well as a constantly updated feed of news and stories. All paid Linux Journal subscribers also receive access to read their monthly issue from within the Android app as a part of their regular subscription.

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
