Feb 07, 2002, 02:31 (18 Talkback[s])
"In a three-pronged assault on the $7.5 billion workstation market, IBM today introduced a line-up of powerful UNIX, Linux and Microsoft Windows-based IntelliStation workstations that offer up to two-and-a-half times faster graphics performance than Sun's fastest workstation[1].

Providing better price/performance than Sun machines[2], the new IntelliStation family also includes the next generation of IBM video monitors, which can display much higher definition images than monitors from other vendors[3].

Today's announcement marks the first time that IBM's UNIX[4] workstations have joined the company's Intel-processor-based machines under the IntelliStation brand. By offering Linux on IntelliStation, IBM intends to capitalize on the growing popularity of the open source operating system among customers."
