"Although IBM is committed to developing Linux on all of its
hardware platforms as well as providing solutions with the
operating system, the company has no plans to release a
distribution of its own. LinuxWorld.com.au spoke with Elmer Corbin,
IBM's Linux Business Strategist, at the Linux Business Expo in
"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."
