.NET and WebSphere Sitting in a Tree

IBM and Microsoft haven't truly gotten along since they split up over OS/2 versus Windows. Now, the battle continues as IBM pitches Linux and Power6-based servers against Dell and HP servers running Windows.

On the development side, IBM runs with Rational (which supports Eclipse) and WebSphere (which competes with Microsoft IIS).

But unlike in decades past, IBM is all about openness and standards. That may be one reason why IBM hooked up with Mainsoft to make sure that .NET and SharePoint work with the IBM WebSphere portal.
