Wired: Joining Forces at New Linux Lab (OSDL)

Computer hardware giants Hewlett-Packard, Intel, IBM, and
NEC are joining together to fund an independent, nonprofit
laboratory to help speed the development and testing of
enterprise-targeted Linux projects.

“The Open Source Development Lab will offer access to
high-powered hardware and a wide range of software to developers of
new and existing projects that utilize open-source licenses and
conform to the accepted open-source development models.”

“Caldera, LinuxCare, Red Hat, SuSE, TurboLinux, and VA Linux
will provide support staff and resources for the lab.”
