Mainsoft, Novell, IBM, and DevX Announce &aposRace to Linux 2.0&apos

SAN FRANCISCO, March 14 /PRNewswire/ -- What: Registrations are now open for the "Race to Linux(R) 2.0," hosted by DevX, a division of Jupitermedia, and sponsored by Mainsoft, Novell, and IBM. The 3-series Race to Linux 2.0 challenges Visual Studio developers to experiment with .NET 2.0-to-Linux porting options. DevX will announce the target applications at the beginning of each race. More than 100 developers have registered to date. The first developer to deliver the application running successfully under SUSE Linux on an IBM System x will win a Nintendo Wii and games package. Additionally, a Nintendo Wii will be awarded to the first correct entry that uses Mono and to the first correct entry that uses Mainsoft Grasshopper, regardless of whether these entries are the first entries overall. Step-by-step tutorials, enterprise case studies, performance studies, and a roundtable discussion with Jeff Smith, Vice President, Open Source and Linux Middleware at IBM; Miguel de Icaza, Vice President of Developer Platforms at Novell; and Yaacov Cohen, President and CEO of Mainsoft regarding the use of cross-platform .NET in the enterprise are available on the Race to Linux 2.0 portal. When: Race #1: Friday, March 23rd at 5:00 p.m. (PST) Race #2: Friday, March 30th at 9:00 a.m. (PST) Race #3: Friday, April 6th at 5:00 p.m. (PST) Where: To learn more about the race and to register, go to http://www.devx.com/racetolinux/Door/33508 . Why: According to a recent survey conducted by The Code Project, a virtual community of 3.9 million Visual Studio developers, 26 percent of Visual Studio developers use Linux development technologies, and 25 percent use Java. This compares to 31 percent of Visual Studio developers who reportedly use Visual Basic .NET. DevX is hosting the Race to Linux 2.0 to encourage Visual Studio developers to experiment with .NET-to-Linux porting options and share best practices in taking ASP.NET 2.0 applications to Linux and open systems.
