"Face it. If you work with Linux, and IBM hasn't tried to partner up with you yet, you're just not working hard enough."
"Take Wednesday's four-way announcement involving IBM, Hewlett-Packard, NEC Corp. and Intel in which each company pledged support and resources for the creation of a new, nonprofit Open Source Development Lab."
"Pulling together a who's who of Linux community companies -- Caldera, Dell, Linuxcare, LynuxWorks, Red Hat, SGI, SuSE, TurboLinux and VA Linux -- the announcement offers the perfect Labor Day finale for what has become a summerlong Linux lovefest at IBM. Although his own company is pledging millions to help get the lab off the ground, IBM vice president of Unix software Ross Mauri says the lab will draw on many benefactors in an effort to avoid coming off as one company's creation."
