(L to R) Piers Harding, DJ Adams (me), and Peter Benger at the SAP stand    Ahh, it’s always great to be able to attend the world’s biggest ICT (information    and communication technology) fair – CeBIT.    And of course being an SAP hacker, it goes without saying that a visit to the    SAP stand is a must.

I was there way back when, with colleagues and friends – among them my SAP    hacking partner-in-crime Piers, on the historical occasion of SAP’s CeBIT announcement    of R/3 on Linux. We were even so geeky as to take a picture    recording the event, under the watchful eye of Tux the Linux penguin mascot.

Anyway, one big reason to visit Hannover in March is because SAP is intending    to make available a new version of the Linux-based evaluation WAS system, at    release 6.40, including the all-important ABAP stack. Thanks SAP, especially    the Linux Lab folks    and also those at SAP who bore the brunt of my recent emails about this – you    know who you are 😉


For references, have a look at the comments thread to Visiting SAP NetWeaver Development Nerve Center, specifically this    message. Also, Alexander H from the Linux Lab was kind enough to send this    reply to an email on the linux.general    mailing list.
