IBM to Invest $100 million in Linux Network-Delivered Computing

IBM unveiled plans to invest $100 million over three years to expand Linux support and technology across its Workplace software portfolio. The investment will be focused on ISV support programs, channel and partner enablement and promotion, research and development, sales and marketing, and various technology and integration centers.

IBM's server-managed client model enables customers to centrally manage and deploy business applications and data to a range of devices as needed -- from traditional desktops and laptops to a range of devices such as shop-floor terminals, PDAs and cell phones. IBM Workplace Client Technology enables products and applications to run on a variety of operating systems, including Linux, which provides an additional choice for customers looking for a client-side Linux solution.
