ZDNet reports on IBM's plan for network processors, an "increasingly popular class of chips." Buried at the bottom of the story is this nugget: "IBM announced this week that the latest version of its PowerNP
development environment, version 2.1, supports the Linux operating system. The
company added Linux support to help developers, especially those at universities,
create applications for use with network processors in an environment they are used
to working in."
