LinuxWorld: Vendors say it's time for Linux to hit data centers

Author: JT Smith

"Executives from IBM and Intel Corp. who spoke at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo that started here
yesterday said it's time for the open-source Linux operating system to make the jump into corporate data centers.

In a preview of a keynote speech that he was scheduled to deliver this morning, Will Swope, general manager of Intel's solutions enabling
group, yesterday said Linux developers should view the data center as the "next frontier" for the operating system. Linux has become mature
enough to expand beyond its current uses in front-end Web servers, Swope said." From ComputerWorld.
