VNU NET: IBM becomes first hardware vendor to fully support Linux

“IBM is championing Linux with a dedicated unit in its hardware
business group focused on the open source operating system as it
aims to make all its server platforms Linux ready….”

“He added:”We want to make every server Linux ready, so we have
Linux for S/390, RS/6000, AS/400 and Numa-Q. There will be one
operating system that straddles the whole of our server
range….”

IBM is talking about making some technology like Java, file
systems and clustering available to the open source movement. It
will speed up the process because the Linux folk won’t have to
write all the code
