Linux Hardware companies don't tend to have their own Linux distributions. IBM uses Linux everywhere, but they don't have their own Linux. Dell will be happy to sell you notebooks and netbooks with Ubuntu or a workstation or server with RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux). But, no major OEM (original equipment manufacturer) has had a house-brand Linux... until now. HP has recently bought not one, but two Linux distributions. Surely HP is not getting into the Linux distribution business? Are they?

Linux is used extensively on infrastructure servers and now even on employees' desktops (thanks to OpenClient). Lotus Notes, Symphony and Sametime runs 100% natively on Linux.

It's very difficult to find a product or bussiness solution without Linux support. From System Z to Websphere... everything has something to do with Linux.

Hey... I think that SuSE Linux is better supported by IBM than by Novell itself. ;)
