Governments joins hand with Linux

Search Enterprise Linux reports how governments across the globe are getting cozy with Linux

Vendors like IBM, meanwhile, are finding new cash cows in government deployments. At the recent LinuxWorld Conference & Expo, IBM said it had started working with India's National Informatics Center (NIC), which will join Hawaii, Oklahoma's Department of Human Services and County Essex in Canada as governments or government agencies that have made the move to adopt IBM and Linux technologies.

IBM will also be contributing the military's largest Linux-based supercomputer to the U.S. Army. The 10 teraflop system is to be installed at the Army Research Laboratory Major Shared Resource Center in Aberdeen, Md., for use with the development of advanced military systems.
