"IBM rattled off a litany of Linux announcements here Wednesday at LinuxWorld and brought out software and hardware group executives to pledge support for the open-source platform."

"IBM's software group announced that the ViaVoice voice-recognition software has been ported to Linux and is available now; that developers can access for free an application developers kit with many major IBM applications, including DB2, Domino and WebSphere; that the NetObjects TopPage Web-page development software is in beta on Linux; and that IBM is contributing its code for a journalling file system to the open-source community."

"Officials said IBM subsidiary Tivoli Systems is planning to port its applications to Linux "soon" as well."

"... many observers were abuzz with what wasn't happening at today's press event. Specifically, Red Hat Inc. was a no-show while other distributors, notably Caldera, were on hand to announce partnerships with IBM."
