Big Blue eclipsed at LinuxWorld

Author: JT Smith

Reports The Register: "'The news here is that the big guys have taken over!' we
overheard a rather excitable reporter inform his editor via
cellphone in the LinuxWorld Expo press room. 'They've
squeezed the little guys out! That's the news!'

Well, not only is that not news, folks, but it isn't even true. Not
from our impressions of the show floor, and we've been to the
last four Stateside Expos. Of them all, this one has the
healthiest balance between the come-latelys -- the IBMs, Dells
and SGIs -- and pure play newcomers."
