Baan: n/a - DB: n/a - OS: AIX, HP-UX, Linux
Question Baan on Linux

I am wondering what the story is for Baan on Linux? I have heard rumours about people working on a portingset for Limux but how much of that is true? Is it an 'official' project within Baan that will be part of their future product/platform strategy? Or is it a solo-venture of a a couple of developers?

I hope Baan is driving this with the aim of providing a full fledged Baan version on Linux one day. With Compaq discontinuing the Alpha architecture, Intel Itanium and sucessors will gain momentum and enable Linux to become an even more powerful player on the market. It would be a shame if Baan is going the miss that train.

There is a portingset for Baan IV on Linux since more than a year. But this was never released. Upto now, there are no informations, whether Linux will be supported in the future.

Gerhard,

If you say never released, do you mean nobody can get it? Or do you need to know the right people?

Baan: Lots of different versions - DB: Most of them - OS: Almost all of them
Other systems

I would say that the Linux porting set is similar to the CE client. There was always a rumour that Baan were working on a client for CE and other handhelds, but as of yet, I have never seen any these items available on the public market.

I am sure that in the hallowed corridors of many Baan Towers, there are many ideas about getting Baan to work on many systems, however... you have to remember that the DB still has to be working in the background.. Anyone know of a MSSQL version that runs in Linux or want to put sales orders on over WAP?

Urgh

MSSQL? Urgh.. Let's stick to Oracle and Informix, both products run nicely on Linux. And who knows there might be future support for MySQL

Fairs Fair

I know that those two products run nicely, but Baan cannot be seen of as wanting to remove a possible sales lead. Remember, that Microsoft were once rumoured to be interested in buying Baan.

I think that there has to be a customer overturn to see a change. When I installed Baan IV c the first time, it was one of the first NT installations in the UK. It was a major risk at the time as no-one could help us with the install (the guy who installed it had done it loads of times, just never outside a training room) and it took us about 3 weeks of fiddling with NT and Informix to get it working. Now an NT installation can be done in a few hours with no problems at all..... The more people moving to Linux and asking will force Baan's hand.

Baan: none (B40c4 was last) - DB: Oracle - OS: Linux (RHEL)
Baan on linux

When I was on Baan, we talked once to the guy that has the portingset running on Linux.
He mention that he adapted/compiled it for linux as part-time, just for fun, but Baan officially did not supported it, not even a ba6.1 client (that would be also nice).
Of course that we tried to convince him to send us the portingset, unsuccesfully I may say

Startrek fan

One of that colleagues is a Startrek fan but he moved to the "dark side", not the guy that had the portingset (a "PEG" guy)

Where do they all come from?

I do wish that these TLA (Three Letter Acronyms) would not be so prolific in this industry. Its bad enough keeping up with the normal terms for someone to start calling themselves something new.

In the end we'll all start talking in NSA (No Sense Acronyms) that CTH (Confuse The Hell) out of ATU (All The Users) of this CPS (Confusing Pieceof Software, yeah I know, but I had to resist the temptation!)

You are right, Jaason.

This portingset really exists. At least one of my consultants runs Baan IV on a private PC at home on Linux.
