  2. Data Center Journal reports on "Big Iron Today: The State of Mainframes." Answer: The state is excellent.
  3. T3 Technologies, TurboHercules, and Neon Software Enterprises have withdrawn their complaint lodged with the European Union's antitrust authorities against IBM. T3 and Neon both lost U.S. court cases against IBM earlier this year.
  4. The Wall Street Journal writes: "Behind the Youthful Sales Surge for IBM Mainframes."
  5. Aptly named Micro Focus is looking for a white knight. Meanwhile, Compuware and BMC beat earnings estimates.
