IBM Linux GM hears enterprise Linux story
Michael S. Mimoso writes "Jim Stallings first public appearance as the general manager of IBM Corp.'s Linux business was in January in New York City at LinuxWorld. Since then, unless you're an IBM enterprise Linux customer, you haven't seen much of the IT veteran. He's spent his first 100 days in office on a very un-presidential misson: meeting with 100 enterprise customers and hearing their Linux story. In this interview, Stallings relays some of what he heard on his trip, what's helping and hampering Linux adoption in the enterprise and even a few words on the SCO Group's billion-dollar suit against IBM."
