[vox] Companies Backing Linux (was Re: RedHat business (was: Re: [vox]OT: Contemplating the unthinkable...))

You could also consider stock in HP, Dell, or IBM in that those companies
seem reasonable commited to supporting Linux.
This is from today's Inquirer.

SIX GIANTS of the industry are to form a group to commercially promote the Linux operating system, according to a report in today's Nihon Keizai Shimbun.

The newspaper says that IBM, Hitachi, NEC, NTT, Fujitsu and Argo 21 will not only tweak the operating system and make other software applications, but will promote the OS actively in Japan.

But the move won't just be limited to Japan. In autumn, the South Korean, Chinese and Japanese governments said they would help companies to develop and promote Linux.

And the Japanese consortium will link with South Korean and Chinese groups so that their work is not duplicated, the newspaper said. While the Japanese group will work on security and software development, the Korean consortium will focus on Linux-based PDAs, and China on PC operating system work.
