Welcoming EDS to the world of Linux

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Mar 21, 2005 10:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
Commentary: EDS, the giant computer services company, apparently doesn't like Linux much right now. EDS vice president of Global Alliances Robb Rasmussen recently told ZDNet Australia, "From a corporate perspective, we are not confident where Linux is right now today. A large enterprise needs to be sure because it relates to securifying [sic] the environment. We see some of the same things occurring that did to Unix -- it could splinter into many different types of languages. We are quite cautious about Linux and its deployment." Uh huh. But companies that issue anti-Linux statements like this often end up embracing Linux before long. That's why I want to extend a welcoming hand to EDS instead of getting upset over that egregious statement.
