portfolio.

IBM will focus its Linux investment on supporting software suppliers and channel partners, research and development, sales and marketing, and technology and integration centres.

"Since customers have been looking for ways to extend the value of Linux to the desktop, IBM felt the time was right to deliver a fully supported Linux client alternative," said Ambuj Goyal, IBM general manager of Workplace, portal and collaboration software.

"IBM is helping customers to more fully utilise the business benefits of the Linux platform by providing software on Linux to help build the front-end of their solutions," he added.
