IBM launches Linux-only Power servers

By Mark W. Kaelin Editor ·
In an effort to sell more of its Power processors, IBM plans to ship Linux-only servers priced to compete in the inexpensive server market. This is a significant change of strategy for Big Blue.
Although IBM has put a significant amount of marketing muscle behind Power processors and Linux, the reaction of the Linux community has been lukewarm.
Why has IBM's strategy of Linux servers been so poorly received? What would lead you to buy a IBM Linux server?
