    IBM exec's memo pushes shift to Linux

    Tres interesente! What troubles me are these subtle qualifiers like when the coo was interviewed and prefaced customer wanting open source w/ "completely". Also, what gives w/ "core" in the caption below...Is Linux open source and any changing of code requires giving back or has rhat found a way around the spirit of open source and turned it proprietary

    > Unlike the proprietary Windows operating systems, whose software blueprints Microsoft closely guards as a trade secret, Linux's core instructions are public and freely available.
