Is IBM set to dump Windows, inside?  

Is IBM set to dump Windows, inside?: "Is IBM set to dump Windows, inside?

That would be a sliver of ice, no doubt

RUMOURS AND FEVERED SPECULATION AMONGST delegates here at the Etre conference in Berlin is that IBM is seriously considering dumping Windows as a standard within its organization.
If the rumours turn out to be true, that’s likely to act as a sliver of ice in the heart of Microsoft, because, after all, what will IBM replace the OS with?
It won’t be OS/2, that’s for sure… we could guess, but we’ll let our readers do that, instead. We guess some ideas have sprung to mind already.
We’ll try wriggle more out of people over here, this is a juicy one, indeed... "

On the other hand, considering the current heated battle with SCO, it's not likely to be Linux. At least _I_ wouldn't bet the house on it unless it was signed, sealed, and delivered (in triplicate and noptarized).
