OpenView can already manage Linux systems, but the management console itself must run on either HP/UX, Solaris or Windows, said Willi Klenk, HP's

"What we are seeing with Linux in the market is a kind of deja vu," he said. "Like Windows, it has its favourite application areas - file and print
servers, database servers, Web servers."
