"The software giant's move builds on a 2-year-old agreement with privately held Turbolinux, which enjoys backing from IBM, Compaq, Intel, Dell, and other high-tech heavyweights. Among the offerings to be bundled by summer are IBM's WebSphere servers, Small Business Suite for Linux, and DB2 Universal Database."

"Our customers are looking for solutions on Linux, and IBM is a leader in delivering complete software offerings that meet the needs of business units across an enterprise, from data centers and application hosting to wireless access and mainframe computing," says T. Paul Thomas, Turbolinux president and CEO."

"Combining Turbolinux products with the breadth of software from IBM, Lotus, and Tivoli [both IBM subsidiaries] gives customers more choice and helps them deploy solutions faster with global availability and support," says Dick Sullivan, IBM Software's vice president for solutions and integration marketing."
