Always keen to promote the use of Linux, IBM is offering a new Migration Kit for Solaris to Linux. The kit is designed to make it easy for customers to migrate from Solaris to Linux on multiple platforms, and itís free! It supports any IBM eServer or System, including Linux on Power, Intel and AMD platforms, and also supports blades and Linux on the mainframe. It will be made available to IBM Business Partners, Independent Software Vendors and customers, with the hope that it will aid in assessing and migrating Solaris C/C++ applications from Solaris SPARC to Linux on IBM Systems. It can be downloaded from IBM's site.
