IBM'S Linux-compatible AIX 5L to ship in May

Author: JT Smith

Linuxgram reports that IBM to make avialable for general release its AIX 5L operating system May 4. "Blue has had an early issue out since, oh, maybe October, but the widgetry that went to limited non-production
distribution didn't have all the bells and whistles that the general release is supposed to carry. It didn't, for instance,
have the precedent-breaking Linux Affinity capability that gives AIX 5L its name. Well, at least the 'L.'

AIX 5L ... is
supposed to run Linux applications after they're recompiled. "
