Linux is the fastest growing computer operating system in the industry
It's fast, reliable, easy to customise and efficient at managing computing resources. Linux is also 'open source' software, and is distributed under the GPL (GNU General Public License), which is what distinguishes it from other major systems.

Support and manage production Linux environments
IBM has embraced Linux
IBM perceived Linux as a game-changer. It turns out IBM was right. Linux is portable. It can run on everything from PDAs to mainframes, and has been deployed across all of IBM's platforms. Thus, Linux has disrupted the status quo by providing you with freedom, choice, and the ability to quickly and cost-effectively drive business innovation.
Linux is open - important for On Demand environments. You have come to understand that openness really matters.
Open source transparency means you have access to the code which enables you to customise and modify Linux to meet your requirements. IBM support, coupled with our alliances with Red Hat and Novell SUSE, ensures that bugs are fixed quickly through a open source community process that isn't controlled by any one vendor.
