.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
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.
