"Is IBM really serious about open source?"
"It's serious enough that the company is revising its original open-source license, released in early December 1998, to better meet the open-source community standards. In addition, IBM is putting the new IBM Public Source License forward for Open Source Initiative approval."
"Why is IBM bothering? Because, according to sources, the company was aware that the open-source community had some problems with IBM's original license and wanted to address them"
