"IBM applauds the accomplishments of open-source Apache, which
some say drives 66 percent of the Internet, perhaps even more,"
said Dr. Kristof Kloeckner, IBM's vice president for business
integration development, in his keynote speech here."
"Open source has been the power behind the Internet and open
source is extremely important to IBM. E-business is IBM's future.
Because of IBM's diversity, open source is good value to us,"
"Kloeckner went on to point out that IBM is active in the
open-source community, citing its work with Apache and the
internationalization of Linux, as well as Big Blue's creation of
the IBM Public Licence, which was developed "in consultation with
the community," as Kloeckner put it."
