You mean this bit?
Mainsoft Corp. and IBM Wednesday announced an effort to work together to
extend the Linux ecosystem by helping Microsoft customers move to Linux.
Mainsoft, of San Jose, Calif., said the new program enables Windows Web
and server applications to run on Linux across IBM's line of eServer
platforms supporting IBM WebSphere application servers.
or this bit?
Mainsoft helped Above All Software Inc., in Redwood City, Calif., move
its .Net-based server components to J2EE and WebSphere within three
months, said Deborah Scharfetter, vice president of products for Above
All Software. Above All Software is a business integration software
maker that sells technology to help customers develop and deploy SOA
(service-oriented architecture)-based applications.
"We want to help ISVs and IT enterprises with investments in Microsoft
skills to be able to move to open systems and get the benefits of Linux,
J2EE and open source," Cohen said. "There is no need to rewrite, retrain
or whatever. You can keep programming in C# and VB .Net."
Meanwhile, Cohen said he is seeing increasing demand for Mainsoft's
cross-platform solutions. Ninety percent of Visual Studio developers
that visit Mainsoft's developer zone (http://dev.mainsoft.com) want to
take their existing .NET applications to Linux and across other
Java-enabled platforms, he said.
More Linux, all day, every day.
