"[Linux/Open Source] is not some kind of New Age business model left over from the ?dot.com?

business going into the future. And as a result, they are a very critical
foundation for IBM." An excerpt from IMB vp Irving Wladawsky-Berger's speech at the IBM Technical Developer Conference in San Francisco. Read the entire speech.
