"Seeing a steady increase in the development of server-based
Linux applications, IBM is making yet another investment in the
open-source operating system, announcing plans Tuesday to
significantly expand its Solution Partnership Centers (SPC) where
developers can customize and test their applications."
"Over the next few months, according to IBM officials, the
company will increase the number of its SPCs from two to 14, to be
spread over five different continents. These centers will offer
developers free technical support as they port, test, and market
their applications on all IBM platforms, particularly the company's
PC-based Netfinity line of servers."
"What this [announcement] is about is making it easier for Linux
applications to be available," said Tom Figgatt, Linux Global
executive at IBM's Netfinity Servers, in Somers, N.Y. "This is all
part of paving the roadway."
