When IBM announced recently it was putting $100 million into Linux development, I declined to get excited. IBM is a huge company, $100 million is like tipping the waiter.
I forgot how well $100 million spends in the real world. Or what it can mean.
Specifically it meansIBM Workplace Collaboration Services, a rich client with enterprise-level scalability, will ship with support for Linux in the second quarter, he notes. It also means help for Linux developers, lower-cost development, and increased flexibility, he adds.>
Americans often forget how what happens here ripples around the world, and how announcements that look small here can have profound implications elsewhere. I thank Puneet for his reminder.
