Linux boots on Niagara

Via an OSNews thread, OSNews, Linux is up and running on the Niagara chip thanks to Dave Miller. Hat's off to Dave.

The goal isn't exactly new news, but Dave's results are.

There are some vendors spreading FUD. Check out Fact 4 in particular. HP, please update your FUD page. Thanks.

No doubt that Linux booting on Niagara isn't an ecosystem. But it is the first step.

Comments:

Well, your point is not bad...it's the first step, but we are still far from being able to say I can run my business on Linux with a Coolthread server and at the same time ask HP to update their statement on Fact #4...
