Debunking more IBM FUD regarding Linux on Mainframes

Once again Ken Milberg has published an article about IBM technologies (this time Linux on Mainframe) full of misrepresentations, omissions and errors.  I commented on his last article as did Jeff Savit and others.

 The best example of Mr. Milberg's content free writing is this paragraph on "price."

Price -- Though there is plenty of open source software that runs on Unix, open source and Linux go together like peanut butter and jelly. While not all open source software is free, one is certainly free to modify its source code.

Yes, that's the whole paragraph.  To quote one of the children in Mary Poppins after hearing the word "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" , "But it doesn't mean anything!"

For a detailed deconstruction of the article by Jeff Savit, check out Jeff's blog entry
