CA throws its weight behind 'undermanaged' Linux

" Computer Associates (CA) has thrown its weight behind the Linux operating system, adding 23 new Linux applications over the past three months.

The move comes at a time when Linux, with its platform standardisation initiative in place, is growing in acceptance in the enterprise marketplace. With support from the eight-member Linux Consortium and giants such as IBM, HP/Compaq and now CA, it has surpassed Unix to become a leading challenger as a platform for embedded development.

According to Paul Le Roux, a database specialist at CA, Linux's popularity is not supported by an adequate range of management tools."
