    IBM to buy Novell?
    Colombian site says within a month

    A report on Colombian site Evaluamos claims that IBM may buy Novell within a month.
    The Spanish language site says that sources close to IBM claim such a deal is on the cards, following Novell's purchase of SuSE Linux just a few weeks ago.

    If the report turns out to be true, that will certainly set the alarm bells ringing at Redmond, Microsoft's HQ.

          IBM Linux presentation

, in coordination with the Desktop Linux Consortium, is making select presentations from Monday's groundbreaking conference at Boston University's Corporate Education Center available.

          Sessions from the well-received program included talks from key companies and open source projects bringing Desktop Linux into the enterprise.

          The first presentation in our series is from IBM's Sam Docknevich, Linux and Grid Services Executive for IBM Global Services. His presentation discusses IBM's push into the Linux desktop market, an initiative from inside "Big Blue."

          With IBM putting more weight behind Linux, I can see why Microsoft is pumping money into SCO for that court case. Don't forget that they're also working closely together developing the (cell) processor for next xbox.
