"It's amazing how well the corporate world is taking to Linux. Many are converting their enterprises from Unix. I think the biggest endorsement is coming from Wall Street firms such as Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs. They trust Linux with their client's money. With respect to security, that's more impressive than even the work of the National Security Agency to secure the Linux kernel."

"IBM announced today that it will build what it says will be the most powerful supercomputer ever to run on the Linux operating system. The new computer, which will be capable of more than 11 trillion calculations per second, will be used by Japan's biggest public research organization to support research in biology and nanotechnology."

"To me, this kind of "Linux as product" mentality misses the entire point of Linux and the open-source development model that created it. Linux is not a product. Rather, Linux is a collection of software components, individually crafted by thousands of independent hands around the world, with each component changing and evolving on its own independent timetable.

"Well, Linux on the server is mainstream now. For Internet infrastructure it's about one-third of the market. So it's nothing new; it's been around for 10 years. It's just that now, with budgets down, with people a little annoyed with some of the Microsoft licensing issues that they've seen, with a renewed focus on getting value from [information technology] rather than IT being a sinkhole -- conditions just seemed right for people to get started in earnest figuring out where to put Linux and other things in the environment.

A couple of things have happened in the past couple of years, and especially the past year, to make Linux more viable than it's ever been and to finally make it viable on the desktop. There's a clone of Word, Excel and PowerPoint that's very good. It runs on Linux, OS X and Windows: OpenOffice.org."

"We have designed [the world's largest Linux-based supercomputer] so that it can be used to research in the areas of computer science, life science such as developing new drugs, and research for materials used for such things as fuel cell batteries and super conductivity."
