IBM Corp.'s SpeedStart Linux Software Evaluation Kit (SEK) is not only the company's, but also perhaps the industry's, most generous SEK offering ever. Designed to bring Linux adoption into enterprise systems, IBM decided to target developers with such a rich variety of tools and applications in order to encourage continued use of Linux. In this manner, the company hopes to see its products being used in concert with Linux.
IBM Corp. is continuing its crusade to make Linux the world's most popular operating system. Its GM for Linux is currently on tour in India, and Big Blue is taking its strategy to China, South Korea, Russia, and Brazil, too.
