IBM IBM Germany has refuted a Groklaw report that the division has decided to migrate Windows desktops to Linux rather than upgrade them to Vista. Groklaw's story was based on statements reportedly made by an IBM sales executive in a presentation at LinuxForum 2006. This morning, Hans Rehm, of IBM Germany's Press Relations department, emailed DesktopLinux.com the following, somewhat ambiguous, statement.

This story on osnews is highly misleading, even if it will likely get justified as just a reprint of someone else's title. If that's your justification, where is the editing part of your "editor" job?

Other than that, this story basically says "no comment", which is a smart thing to do on the part of IBM.

The Linux migration is going forward full steam. Otherwise, you have received a strong message disabowing everyone. IBM is just doing damage control now because the story got out sooner than it should have.
