Linux conquering Big Blue?

IBM announced it will extend factory installation of the Linux operating system to include its thin clients, servers, and notebooks.

Speaking at LinuxWorld in New York, Irving Wladawsky-Berger, head of IBM’s recently created Linuxgroup, said the company is testing Linux on its S/390 mainframes and is working to make its AS/400 servers increasingly Linux-friendly.

In addition, IBM said Linux will be available for its Network Station 2200 and 2800 thin clients, and will be offered as a preloaded option for its Intel Netfinity servers and ThinkPad notebooks.
