I reckon that maybe some of you might be interested in checking what IBM has got available on LINUX and some other stuff also. Check it out, you might be surprised of what you can find there. As an example, here there are some interesting links. Thanks.
Get code related to the eclipse development platform and grid technology at no charge through IBM alphaWorks. The Grid computing and Eclipse collections build on the Autonomic computing collection announced in March. Grid computing enables the virtualization of distributed computing and data resources such as processing, network bandwidth and storage capacity to create a single system image, granting users and applications seamless access to vast IT capabilities. Eclipse is an open source, Java-based, extensible development platform, which includes a standard set of plug-ins, including the Java Development Tools (JDT). Eclipse also includes the
Plug-in Development Environment (PDE), which enables developers to extend Eclipse and build tools that integrate seamlessly with the Eclipse environment. For Grid computing check out:

Advanced Weblications with SashXB
This article is intended for developers who are familiar with SashXB. It covers several advanced topics, such as callbacks, GTK widget manipulation, and the use of several common SashXB extensions, using code examples from an LDAP-based Intranet directory navigation and search tool written for SashXB.
Create a VNC system with tclRFB
Although VNC or Virtual Network Computing is widely used as a "productivity tool" for programmers and administrators, that's far from the limit of the technology's capabilities. tclRFB opens up a spectrum of possibilities for distributed architectures.
