"Announces new products, open source contribution to accelerate Linux development."

"IBM today announced a new thin client computer and voice recognition software for Linux, as well as new contributions to open source development. The announcements come on the heels of IBM's decision two weeks ago to embrace Linux on all of its server hardware product lines and to contribute more of its own software and technology to the Linux development effort."

"With today's announcements, IBM Network Stations will enable customers to create a highly configurable and customized Linux environment, while enjoying the benefits of thin-client computing, including fast and flexible application deployment and lower total cost of ownership. In addition, ViaVoice technology voice-enables Linux applications, making them much easier to use and more functional. As a result, Linux will become more accessible to companies that wish to deploy the open source software for next-generation applications for cell phones, personal digital assistants and web phones. Customers will also have an easier time setting up Linux-based web sites using a new Linux version of NetObjects TopPage. "Open standards are key to the next phase of the e-business evolution," said Irving Wladawsky-Berger, IBM vice president of technology and strategy, Enterprise Systems Group. "Linux is moving into the computing mainstream at the same pace the Internet did a few years ago and will fuel the growth of e-business."
