"Executives from IBM and Intel Corp. who spoke at the LinuxWorld
Conference & Expo that started here yesterday said it's time
for the open-source Linux operating system to make the jump into
corporate data centers."
"In a preview of a keynote speech that he was scheduled to
deliver this morning, Will Swope, general manager of Intel's
solutions enabling group, yesterday said Linux developers should
view the data center as the "next frontier" for the operating
system. Linux has become mature enough to expand beyond its current
uses in front-end Web servers, Swope said."
"Swope's comments matched those made earlier yesterday by Samuel
Palmisano, IBM's president and chief operating officer. Palmisano,
who was named to his current job at IBM last summer, opened the
LinuxWorld conference with a keynote speech in which he asserted
that Linux is ready to leap the chasm between being "a nice modular
technology" for smaller business systems to becoming a key
operating system for use in corporate e-business applications."
