A new IBM blog by Adam Jollans, Program Director, Cross-IBM Linux Strategy, IBM explains how new workload demands and greater hardware heterogeneity are placing Linux at the heart of IT innovation. Linux used to be the commodity play, doing the same for less to help improve the bottom line, Jollans notes. But today, more than ever, Linux not only offers a price advantage but is a major force fueling innovation. That is why IBM continues to vigorously support Linux.
