Linux Is Sometimes a Pleasant Surprise

Sometimes, companies end up gaining advantages from Linux even though Linux wasn't mainly what they had in mind. That's what happened when online
sporting goods retailer Anaconda Sports replaced its outgrown e-comm server with an IBM Websphere architecture combining Linux and Windows 2000
components.

"We weren't exactly shouting, 'We must have Linux!' But our DB2 server running Linux has worked out great," said Rob Meyer, Anaconda's director of
Internet services.

SCS, Inc. is hosting the Linux-based database server, along with IBM WebSphere Commerce Server 5.5 and WebSphere Application Server 4.0, both running
Microsoft's W2K.
