IBM Looks to Lure Windows NT Users to Linux

IBM is looking to lure Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 users to Linux with new programs for business partners and
customers at LinuxWorld this week.

Big Blue has chosen the conference in New York City as the pulpit from which to preach about its Linux migration programs because Microsoft is slated
to discontinue pay-per-incident and security support for NT 4.0, used by as many as 2 million customers, by year's end.

This could pose considerable security concerns for customers. A popular server for small and medium-sized businesses since 1996, NT has, like much of
Microsoft's software, fallen prey to security flaws.
