IBM cranks up Linux presence in Asia

Author: JT Smith

CNet reports IBM's Linux efforts in the Asia-Pacific
region.
"In September, the computer-services giant said it would invest more than $200 million over four
years to speed up the development of Linux-based products in Asia. IBM also had planned to
invest in seven Linux development and competency centers in the region, as well as hire 300
consultants, researchers and product developers.

Today IBM is well on its way with those plans, yet says it still has some ground to cover."
