"IBM on Wednesday is expected to debut a component of its e-commerce WebSphere server that runs on Linux, continuing its effort to bring the operating system to more of its larger server systems."

"Using WebSphere Commerce Suite Start 4.1 running on Linux, businesses can buy and sell products, build catalogs, and run customer loyalty and relationship management programs. The software is targeted at companies looking to establish business-to-business and business-to-consumer operations."

"We're initially providing the WebSphere Commerce Suite Start on Red Hat's distribution of Linux, which is now available, then (following) up with support for Caldera, SuSE and Turbolinux" by the end of January 2001, said Ed Kilroy, general manager of IBM's e-commerce software group."
