Twenty years of open source software for IBM Z and LinuxONE

Filed under
Red Hat
Server

In this post, I explore the history, the details, and the large ecosystem of open source software that’s now available for the IBM Z and LinuxONE platforms.

IBM has deep roots in the open source community. We have been backing emerging communities from a very early stage — including the Linux Foundation, the Apache Software Foundation, and the Eclipse Foundation. This includes years of contributions to the development of open source code, licenses, advocating for open governance, and open standards in addition to being an active contributor to many projects.

As open source continues to gain momentum in the software world, we see growth reflected across different hardware and processor architectures. The processor architecture for IBM Z and LinuxONE is known as s390x.

Still, in reality, it is a complete failure in the eyes of your society, friends, and even your close loved ones. It was here where all the criticism started pouring on me.

I never lost hope. I got myself admitted to college. But, little did I know my passion would soon earn me a living.

8 Best Free and Open Source Linux Renderers

One of the many strengths of Linux is its good range of open source software for artists, photographers, animators, and designers. With inexpensive hardware, free software, and a modicum of talent and inspiration, anyone can create professional-looking computer graphics. If you are new to computer graphics, it may not be clear what is meant by the term rendering. To clarify, rendering is the process of generating an image from a model (or a collection of models, known as a scene file) using computer software. This entails the computer software to perform calculations to translate the scene from a mathematical approximation to a 2D image. To generate the image, the scene file contains objects in a defined language or data structure, containing geometry, lighting, shading, texture, and viewpoint. This data is processed by the rendering software to generate a raster image file or a digital image. Read more
