The week in review: Linux lovefest
Author: JT Smith
From C|Net: "Linux lovers joined computing giants and smaller specialists this week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo to discuss the future of the open-source operating system. IBM argued the relatively new operating system has begun fulfilling its potential as mainstream customers build serious servers with it. Big Blue, which has pledged to spend $1 billion on the Unix clone this year, announced several new Linux customers and said that its Websphere e-commerce software now works on a mainframe running Linux."
