IBM reiterates support for Linux, AIX
Sam Varghese, June 13 2003
IBM remains steadfast in its support for Linux and sees growing evidence
that the market agrees, a company spokesman in Australia said today.
Though the SCO Group's has said it intends to withdraw IBM's AIX licence
by midnight US time, IBM did not offer any comment on the case which SCO
has filed against it. "It is not our practice to comment on pending
litigation," the spokesman said.
He had plenty to say about AIX. "IBM is extremely committed to AIX and
to the thousands of AIX customers worldwide. For IBM, AIX represents
years of innovation, hundreds of millions of dollars in investment and
many key IBM patents.
"IBM intends to continue to accelerate the rapid growth of AIX, the
fastest growing UNIX operating system in the industry."
SCO's regional general manager for Australia and New Zealand, Kieran
O'Shaughnessy, had nothing to say.
