"IBM is looking for a few good Linux solution providers?and it's willing to pay to get them started."
"At the PartnerWorld conference this week in Atlanta, IBM Corp. (stock: IBM ) said it expanded its Linux-focused You Pass, We Pay program. Under the program, IBM will reimburse business partners for up to $3,000 in tuition and test expenses for each employee who gets certified via the Linux Professional Institute or Red Hat Linux, said Richard Sullivan, vice president of solutions and integration management at the vendor's software group."
"To help solution providers get ready for the Linux certification process, IBM also unveiled the Ready, Set, Linux initiative that offers business partners a half day of training and workshops on Linux, a two-day workshop on software products for Linux, and a full education curriculum leading to Linux certification, Sullivan said. The program will be offered via IBM's value-added distributors, he said."
