Linux: Ready, willing and able
Some of the industry's most powerful vendors came to the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in Boston last week with a simple message: Linux is ready for prime time.
"2005 will be a watershed year," Computer Associates International's new President and CEO John Swainson said in a keynote address.
"For the first time, you'll be able to build and deploy an enterprise-class application using only open source technology." Before taking over CA in November, Swainson was vice president of worldwide sales for IBM's Software Group.
