By now, no doubt, some (most?) of you have already seen the news...
But for those of you who have not:
IBM's Answer To Windows 7 Is Ubuntu Linux
Tuesday October 20 @ 7:57 PM
"It looks like IBM isn't much of a friend of Microsoft's anymore.
Today IBM announced an extension of its Microsoft-Free PC effort
together with Canonical Ubuntu Linux. This is the same thing that was
announced a few weeks back for Africa (a program that began a year
ago), and now it's available in the US. The big push is that IBM
claims it will cost up to $2,000 for a business to move to Windows 7.
They argue that moving to Linux is cheaper."
