BusinessWeek: "One key element in HP's makeover is the adoption of Linux, the free, open-source operating system (OS) revered by computer programmers and reviled by companies like Microsoft, who have long made most of their money selling proprietary software. This week, HP will announce a plan to unveil Linux versions of key network operations programs commonly used by large corporations to oversee multiple networks. These programs were long considered too complex and mission-critical to be run on Linux. Not anymore. HP's romance with Linux looks like it's turning into a long-term commitment."
