QA with IBM's Dan Frye: "Everything Has Changed"

,----[ Quote ]
| You will be talking about 10+ years of Linux
| at IBM. What has changed about Linux in a
| decade? What hasn't?
| Frye: Whoa. Everything has changed. Nothing
| is the same, with the possible exception of
| the "can do" philosophy of the global Linux
| development team. Everything has evolved -
| the technology, the market, customer
| adoption, the development process (yes, Linux
| community does have processes, even if
| they're frequently loathe to admit it....).
| And all for the better. One of the most
| amazing things about the Linux market has
| been unbroken chain of success over the past
| decade - not once did the Linux pause or even
| briefly decline. The rise of the Internet
| ushered in the age of open standard computing
| with customers demanding freedom from relying
| upon any single, closed operating system
| provider. As a result, today, Linux is an
| unstoppable force in the industry, changing
| the economics of information technology,
| driving open standards in a way never before
| possible, and advancing customer innovation.

IBM Partners To Offer $190 Cloud-Connected Netbook For Emerging Markets

,----[ Quote ]
| The Simmbook is one of the first Netbook to
| provide direct access to the cloud by
| offering a package of online collaboration
| tools. The OS is not cloud-based but
| LotusLive is a robust enough application
| suite to give customers a cloud environment
| that should prove useful and less expensive
| than the costs of a Windows-based operating
| system.
