Open Magazine - Your strategic guide to Open Source 

This issue marks the 100th issue of Open on the Web. It also marks some 
interesting new beginnings for Linux on Power and Power on open source. 

Linux has a strong affinity for 64-bit power computing. This issue's 
story about bioinformatics describes research endeavors going on at two 
campuses where high-performance computing could turn the tide for 
important medical breakthroughs. It's a classic tale of collaboration spurred 
on by the open source ethic and tangible new knowledge spurred on by 
Linux on 64-bit computers.

Beneath the hoopla of IBM's new push to rock the IT world with Linux on 
its new POWER5 chip is a more radical story. This story is all about 
the second wave of the open source revolution: How to apply the open 
source ethic to new business realms. This time, IBM is rocking the 
semiconductor world by opening Power Architecture to the power of open source.
