IBM Pushes the Penguin, Dedicates More Support for Linux



+ Add a Comment


even know IBM had a software bundle. I know they had OS2 Warp and it flopped... what else do they have ??


Acer Aspire 5610z,Vista HP, No problems with Vista... so far, but I'm learning Linux, just in case.

Acer Aspire 5315-2153, $348 Walmart Special,Mandriva Linux 2008.1 Spring Edition,VirtualBox 1.6.4



I believe the main reason to push linux was the office suite (openoffice, koffice, lotus/IBM ...etc.) to be totally compatible with Ms office. Let's not talk about games, just for working business only. We all know as mpc usual visitors and readers, when a file's facing compatibility problems it would be pain in the neck to fix it, and probably way easier to redo.

Microsoft has made MS office for mac, they sure can make one for Linux...,or could it be due to the news simlar to this and that's the reason they were having difficulties?

If MS OS and their software were having conflict of interest in the market under the same company, it would probably be wise for them to seperate those two apart.
