IBM Again Pledges $1 Billion to a Linux Effort

WSJ- Linux continues to dominate data centers. IBM wants more of that action to take place on its hardware.

The computer giant on Tuesday plans to pledge that it will spend $1 billion over four or five years on Linux and related open-source technologies for use on its Power line of server systems, which is based on the internally developed chip technology of the same name. (IBM, Industry, Linux, Software)

They're spending money on Linux for SERVERS?!?!

OMG HOW UNHEARD OF
/s

Everybody uses linux for servers already, people. Unix was already losing foothold because it costs too much and has stagnated a bit. Windows for servers isn't as good as Unix or cheap as Linux (and most would argue not as good, either), so it's the black sheep right off the bat.
