IBM Said to Challenge Microsoft the Most

Bill Gates
Not much to worry Bill Gates

ACCORDING to Reuters, Bill Gates states [enormous ASPURL‘] that IBM is the main rival to Microsoft. Google are Apple are said to be smaller factors of concern, which lies in contrary to some fairly recent memo and even a few urgent strategic moves.

IBM studies show that Linux TCO is 40% lower than that of the Windows equivalent. What happens when IBM begin to pull out the Windows equipment from their clients’ operations environment?

What I find most admirable about IBM is that, unlike Google and Microsoft, they give no compelling reason to be hated. They embrace and encourage standards. They cater for diversity where it seems suitable.
