IBM furthers Linux While Gates Signs Contract

IBM may be committed to furthering it's involvement with Linux, first with it's announcement a few days ago of significant investment, and today amidst accusations from M$ that it's all talk, they state they currently employ approximately 8 to 9000 developers to work directly on open source projects.

Although they plan on concentrating much of said investment into it's server-managed client approach, M$ seems to be fairing okay. Despite the Beijing council's new procurement rules, they have made a substantial purchase of Microsoft software. It's gonna be a long tough road ahead to break their monopoly.
