"IBM is making good progress on its plans to open source key technologies from its AIX-Monterey and S/390 operating systems, the company said this week."

"Irving Wladowsky-Berger, vice president of technology and head of IBM's Linux initiatives, said he hoped the first pieces of technology would be made available within the next few months. But he said IBM must first agree with the Linux community as to which technologies they would want to incorporate into the open source operating system."

"We want to work with the Linux community to help make Linux better in areas it is not so strong, such as reliability and scaleability. We will open source limited portions of AIX-Monterey and S390 to help Linux be better," said Irving Wladowsky-Berger, vice president of technology at the enterprise systems group."
