"Sutor's latest promotion gave him not only corporate
responsibility for Linux but profit responsibility also.
""If it's IBM software, and if it runs on Linux, I care about

search for Linux profits.
"Sutor described Linux as a secret sauce that lets it sell
complete systems which may include Tivoli management, Rational
tools, Websphere web servers, and IBM hardware. He said IBM
currently has over 500 software products running on Linux and over
30,000 Linux desktops.
