"IT developers and users around the world have a strong desire for Open Standards in operating systems and programs. It is no wonder Linux is quickly becoming the operating system of the future because the program code is readily available (Open Source) and it is free to download from the internet."

"Today the IT University of Copenhagen launched Denmark's biggest Open Source initiative when the Danish Minister for Research and Information Technology, Birte Weiss, officially opened the LinuxLab.dk. IBM is the founding sponsor of the laboratory."

"The IT University s LinuxLab will be the place where students meet and participate in the development of Open Source," Research Minister Birte Weiss said. "From this lab knowledges and competencies about Open Source will spread like rings in the water to businesses and the public service. This will create new possibilities and new perspectives in connection with the the use of Open Source programs," Birte Weiss said."
