Segment Two- IBM revs up for a Linux Future- with Dan Frye
Tonight we will have a conversation with our old friend Dan Frye, Director of IBM's
Technology Center. Dan has been on the show before and is well known by our regular listeners.
We will discuss the expanding presence of IBM as a power house Linux vendor and freind to the
Open Source community. SCO may become a part of the conversation, but we will be stressing
IBM's role as a driving force for the enterprise adoption of Linux.
The Linux Technology Center
(http://www-124.ibm.com/developerworks/oss/linux/) was founded to track the various
technical contributions IBM as a whole is making to Linux and related development communities.
This site is hosted by the IBM Linux Technology Center whose mission is to work directly with
the Linux development community with a shared vision of making Linux succeed.
Since 1999, we have been talking about the remarkable sudden redirection of IBM
to take hold of Linux and Open Source and make it a core corporate business tool. This story
has to be one of the most remarkable stories of a wholesale cange in corporate culture in the IT
industry history. Many people (and countless inhouse geeks) were responsible for this change
in course, but as co-author of the original strategy papers used by IBM on both Linux and
open source, Dan Frye has to be one of the chief navigators of the changes at IBM.
Like all changes in direction, this course change has not been without storms and controversy;
SCO just being the most visable to the public to date. But month by month more and more of the
IBM corporate culture has been won over to the light side of the force. Now that the new course
SEEMS set for IBM corp bosses, Frye has changed his own course from in-house advocate to
coordinating open source developments with IBM and assuring smooth
relations with the community at large. As Director of the Linux Technology Center, Dan works
directly with a number of differing Linux development projects transforming linux into
a practical business reality for IBM clients, and the entire linux community. IBM is very active
in community development hosting a number of project out on Sourceforge and is a sponsor member
of the Open Source Development Lab (see last weeks show with Larry.).
What has impressed us most here at TLS is that IBM has not just talked a good game, but they have
peformed and lived up to every commitment with the Open SOurce community. A great deal of the good
work is due to the good start down the path delivered at the hands of Dan Frye.
