US company in talks with Indian IT firms to push Linux system

Mumbai: Open Invention Network (OIN), a US firm funded by six companies, including IBM and Red Hat, is exploring possibilities of popularising the Linux operating system for computers in India.

The company is trying to spur innovation and protect the Linux system, which is widely seen as a slow but certain challenge to Microsoft's proprietary Windows operating system.

Linux is a free operating system and is gaining popularity with computer makers such as Dell, HP, and Lenovo.
