While some Linux vendors in recent weeks have been tossed about by stormy stock market waters, IBM is proceeding full steam ahead with its support of Linux. On Monday, a variety of IBM divisions made a slew of Linux announcements. Among the most interesting: the company made public its long-anticipated strategy of bringing Linux to its AS/400 server, the last of the IBM hardware platforms to obtain full-fledged Linux support. IBM (ibm) also announced strategies for preloading Linux on Thinkpad systems; delivering a Linux small business bundle to business partners and Linux distributors; and rolling out a new e-business-oriented Linux certification program.
