"The industry's first independent, nonprofit lab for developers wanting to transform Linux into a leading e-business operating system is set to open in Portland, Oregon, at the end of the month."

"Backed by a bevy of big-name vendors -- including Big Blue, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Caldera, Red Hat, SuSE Linux, and TurboLinux -- the Open Source Development Lab will accelerate existing industry projects and give the open source community the resources it needs to advance new projects, such as building Linux enhancements to support telcos and data centers."

"Initial lab projects will be announced later this month, says IBM spokesperson Lisa Lanspery, but they're expected to address a variety of enterprise capabilities, including Linux infrastructure, application services, and tools."
