"For Big Blue, Linux is the Big Glue, a ubiquitous operating system that will tie all of IBM's servers together."
"That is why Big Blue has made Linux education a top priority at this year's IBM PartnerWorld 2001, a conference attended this week by about 4,000 IBM business partners in Atlanta, Ga."
"We have all been waiting for a technology like Linux," said Brian Sanders, Program Director xSeries NOS/ServerProven Marketing."
"He said everyone has been waiting for an OS not controlled by any one vendor, that has the support of a community of developers and users and that is ubiquitous across the industry. IBM?s business partners are just getting into Linux and want to learn more about it, he said. So IBM is extending its educational and certification programs to include Linux."
