| In an interview with IDG News Service, Adam Jollans, Linux strategy
| manager for IBM, discusses how he sees Linux adoption evolving across
| vertical industries and in businesses both small and large, and how
| IBM is adapting its own Linux strategy to mesh with those trends.
| How is IBM software revenue on Linux doing? It's been growing faster than
| Linux, and that's because people are moving from using Linux for simple
| tasks to more complicated tasks so they start to want reliable transactio-
| nal databases and Web application servers and so on. We see this especially
| around Web application servers, Web commerce servers, and the integration
| between Linux and other parts, and also systems management.
