LinuxWorld.com.au spoke with Elmer Corbin, IBM's Linux Business Strategist, at the Linux Business Expo in Sydney...."

"Given that so much work is being done by IBM, including a long-term financial commitment to the operating system, are there any plans for IBM to release a Linux distribution of its own?"

"EC: We're happy with our distribution partners and don't have any plans as yet to release a Linux distribution of our own. There are many ways in which IBM contributes to Linux on the desktop through development of open source software."
