IBM Logo

IBM® - IBM has come a long way from its formal beginning in 1911 as a manufacturer of punch card processing equipment, with scales and meat slicers as significant sidelines. The company made its reputation as the most significant manufacturer of "big iron" mainframes. In 1981 IBM introduced the IBM PC at the polar opposite of the market, a radical step that arguably laid the foundation for the industry that exists today. After a near-death experience in the early 1990s, IBM turned away from its almost exclusive focus on big-iron, all-proprietary systems. IBM has been working with the Gnu and Open Source communities since at least 1999 and is proud to be the largest corporate investor in free (as in "free speech") software. The IBM Linux Technology Center is the world-wide development team that is responsible for applying open source software to get the most out of IBM's world-class computer offerings.
