IBM is shipping its Workplace Services suite of applications with the Red Hat Linux operating system.
Companies are being offered both systems for 90-day trial periods. IBM wants large corporate and public-sector IT users to use its software when they switch to Linux.
Red Hat is the largest Linux supplier. Small and medium-sized businesses or individual departments in larger organisations will be able to test IBM Workplace Services on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system.
IBM announced the joint offer at the Linuxworld conference.
Steve Mills, the supplier’s senior vice-president and group executive, said Linux had moved on from being the cheap alternative to Microsoft. It was now the “operating system of choice”, he argued.
IBM Workplace Services Express v2.5 is a collaboration suite. It enables users to send instant messages, manage documents and communicate with other team members. When users take up the joint offer, Workplace Services can be downloaded as a virtual machine from Red Hat Network.
