SYBASE, DB2 EXPECTED TO FALL TO ADVANCE OF LINUX

By CBR Staff Writer

CA’s Ingres, Oracle, Informix… who’s missing from this list? Full marks to anyone who said Sybase and DB2. Those are the big enterprise databases and in an unprecedented display of support for the open source software community, this year has seen the first three announce Linux-compatible versions of their flagship products. Nicholas Petreley is hinting in no less a forum than InfoWorld (itself syndicated to CNN) that Sybase and/or DB2 will be the next to fall. Specifically, he predicts that a major database vendor will bundle its wares with Caldera’s OpenLinux distribution any day now. This wouldn’t have anything to do with Petreley’s new career as editor of the eponymous LinuxWorld, would it?
