OUT OF CONTEXT: LINUX LUNACY

"I'm not a big fan [of IBM's Linux push]. We call it Linux lunacy.

We think they expect too much. They're probably investing too much.

IBM's primary motive has been to create an application platform on
all of their servers so that developers can write to one interface
and suddenly have availability to all the servers.

But in the business world, we don't see those developers coming.

You see a lot of developers around the Linux-type market -- Web servers,
anything
focused around Apache, tools, kiosk-like things, but you don't see
general-purpose applications.

We don't see our clients begging for it, either.
We don't see the business need. Let me be proven wrong."

-- Tom Bittman, Gartner Group vice president and research director
