Linux on POWER8 / OpenPOWER Resources

Updated 09/06/2016: Corrected a mix-up in links associated with MariaDB & DB2. Added SugarCRM.

Thought I would put together a recent collection of Linux on POWER resources I collected.  There is a bit of rhyme & reason to it but not in any particular order.  Also, keep in mind a few of the links are perishable, meaning when you finally get to reading this blog it may be well after the link or offer is valid.

I have another LoP resource document I use with about 2-3X more content but it is in a different format.  If I have time, I’ll try to put it in the active bullet link format used below.
