This is an extremly good thing for us!

We are forced to use SLES or RHES because of DB2 support for Ubuntu. 
Now we only need support for the following
* Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM)
* SGI Data Migration Facility (DMF)
* Oracle
* DB2 Netsearch Extender (Might be included in the DB2 software cert?)

Any Ideas when DB2 will install straight off on a Ubuntu box? I've
installed it many times but it requires running alien on a bunch of
rpm's and install them.  No problem but still.

Also, any work being done on any other IBM product (or Oracle, or.....)

This is great!
