Internal memo confirms IBM move to Linux desktop

We reported last year that Big Blue was firmly committed to moving to a Linux desktop environment, and we now have confirmation in the form of an IBM
memo that this is going to happen.

The memo, titled On Demand Initiatives, from IBM CIO Bob Greenberg, and forwarded to us by an insider at IBM on the West Coast, is encouraging senior
execs at Big Blue to switch to a Linux desktop by the end of 2005.

That, says Greenberg, is a challenge that IBM's chairman himself put to Big Blue's IT organisation.
