IBM gives $40 million worth of software tools to Open Source

Author: JT Smith

"The new open-source organization, called Eclipse, will
focus on the programming tools used to build applications and other software. More than 150
software companies, from Linux distributors like Red Hat and SuSE to applications developers like
Rational and Bow Street, are lined up to join the Eclipse community.

The group plans to establish a governing board later this month, to guide the technical standards
and work of the open-source software tools community. I.B.M. will be one of several board
members of the Eclipse organization." More at New York Times. (Free membership required to view article.) IDG News Service has another version, with no registration required.
