IBM to focus on growth as rivals vie for business

Author: JT Smith

Reuters (on Totaltele.com) has a story about the challenges facing IBM as new CEO Samuel Palmisano takes over. The story notes IBM's love of open standards. "IBM says it has embraced such open industry standards, putting its weight behind the Linux
operating system -- which is an open system that can be changed by anyone that uses it. Just
last week it announced it would begin selling mainframes that run on the Linux operating
system alone."
