    IBM Redbook: OS/2 to Linux Client Transition

    IBM is announcing that they are discontinuing OS/2 Warp next year. Which is sort of like announcing that they are going to be striking a dead dog with a baseball bat some time in the future.

    If you dig deep into the article web page, you will find a couple of interesting IBM Redbooks.

    One of them is the OS/2 to Linux Client Transition. It could server as a valuable primer to anyone in the Linux community needing a "get aquainted" book.

    This IBM Redbook provides information related to the viability of Linux as a client platform. It targets technical personnel who are involved in evaluating Linux as a possible client platform. It also targets administrators and support personnel who are responsible for supporting client systems. This redbook can also be helpful to anyone who is evaluating the potential of using Linux for enterprise client systems. However, the key focus is on environments where OS/2 is currently used.

    Many enterprises have been using OS/2 as a stable platform for critical enterprise client applications. However, as those enterprises look to the future, they look for a platform on which they can build a strategy that is open, standards-based, secure, and provides a cost-effective solution. Linux has become successful as a server platform in many of these same enterprises. It comes as no surprise that these enterprises also want to evaluate the possibility of including Linux for many of their client systems.

    This redbook describes platform and functional considerations for choosing Linux as a client platform. It examines techniques and facilities for administering Linux clients, coexistence of Linux clients with other platforms, and a technique to easily install Linux clients based on the well-known OS/2-based CID methodology.

    Table of Contents
    Chapter 1. Introduction to Linux
    Chapter 2. Platform considerations
    Chapter 3. Functional considerations
    Chapter 4. Linux client administration
    Chapter 5. Coexistence considerations
    Chapter 6. Migration considerations
    Chapter 7. Linux client installation
    Appendix A. Basic Linux for OS/2 users
    Appendix B. Additional material

    The most glaring omission however is how to PORT your desktop applications from OS/2 to Linux desktop. This book is more concerned with showing you the alternate applications for the basic "out of the box" user.

    eComStation (eCS) was released by Serenity Systems as a replacement for OS/2 Warp 4 which is no longer being sold by IBM. While IBM continues to market Warp Server (an excellent e-commerce platform) it is not well suited to the single user. SOHO users will find eComStation to be an excellent productivity platform with lots of eye candy for those that like to enhance their desktops.

    eComStation(tm) (eCS) is an Internet enabled platform for business desktop computing. The focus of eCS is to provide an organization with a set of world class business applications and an application engine which can support multiple API sets. eCS is REXX enabled and comes with support for Java, Windows 3.x (limited 32 bit Windows), OS/2 and DOS applications
