OPERATING SYSTEMS --
While we're still waiting on HP to shed any more details or release their Linux++ operating system initiative, today they have made public OpenSwitch: an open-source network operating system.

The new OpenSwitch NOS software initially works with HP Altoline switches while the company hopes this new project will develop into a full-featured, community-based operating system.

Besides HP, also involved with OpenSwitch is Broadcom, Intel, VMWare, and other companies.

More details on the new project at OpenSwitch.net.
