Submission + - IBM Investing $1B To Promote Linux Development (

itwbennett writes: At LinuxCon this week, IBM is expected to announce a $1 billion investment to promote Linux development as it tries to adapt Power mainframes and servers to handle cloud and big data applications in distributed computing environments. The investment will fund Linux application development programs for IBM's Power servers and also be used to expand a cloud service where developers can write and test applications for Power servers before deployment. It will also facilitate software development around IBM's new Power8 chips, which will go into servers next year.
