Linux on the desktop at IBM
16th November 2003
Spotted on Slashdot, IBM’s Open Source Desktop—Directions for today... and Tomorrow presentation includes one slide that really caught my attention:
To continue our own journey to becoming an on demand business, IBM expects to migrate our internal desktop environment, where appropriate, to open standards based on the Linux platform.
Of course, depending on how they define “appropriate” this could be a lot less exciting than it looks. Still, it’s a pretty huge boost for the Linux desktop movement.
