"Among the changes: the availability of SuSE Linux on select RS/6000 servers and Caldera OpenLinux on A20 and T20 ThinkPads; WebSphere support for Linux; the introduction of a software bundle for small businesses relying on Linux; and funding for Linux education and certification."

"Initially SuSE Linux will be available on just a few RS/6000 models, with wider support planned for later in the year. The B50 rack-mountable server, which IBM targets at service providers, F-50 deckside server, and 43P model 150 entry servers and workstations are among the first RS/6000s supporting Linux."

"IBM said it would later offer Linux on its AS/400 systems but would not give specific information on availability. ... To bolster Linux services and support, Big Blue today committed several million dollars to support and training programs for 45,000 software developers and 45,000 IBM dealers."
