"Customers of IBM's Netfinity servers will now be able to buy machines preloaded with the Linux operating system and will be able to choose from three flavors of the ever-popular open-source software."

"Top Linux vendors Red Hat, Caldera Systems, and TurboLinux separately announced Monday that IBM will either preinstall or bundle their Linux versions on Netfinity servers. An IBM official quoted in the written statements said that customers increasingly want Linux as an OS option, and also noted its value for companies doing business on the Internet."

"Monday's announcements are part of a "continual stream" related to IBM servers and Linux, said Jay Bretzmann, IBM manager of strategy for Netfinity in an interview. IBM had announced plans to work with Caldera, and Monday's news represents the "next set of steps" in that partnership as well as in providing Linux enthusiasts a broader range of options, Bretzmann said."
