Linux Shines on National Weather Service

In the second installment of a multi-part deal with IBM, the National Weather Service (NWS) has dropped its HP-UX-based RISC workstations in favor of
IBM IntelliStation PCs operating Red Hat Linux.

Almost 1,000 meteorologists are using the new Linux-based workstations at NWS facilities nationwide, said Bob Lenard, IBM's director for eServer
workstations during an interview. The Linux PCs are also outfitted with IBM's NVidea graphics package.
