IBM pushes game as learning tool for Linux admins
Michael S. Mimoso writes "Taking its cue from purveyors of educational games for children, IBM Corp. is making games for IT pros. More than 215,000 copies of IBM AlphaWorks' first game, Robocode, have been downloaded. In this code-writing tutorial, players build robots to compete in a game. AlphaWorks' second game release, CodeRally, gives Linux developers and administrators a fun way to master Java tools."
