New IBM open source portal site

IBM has published recently a new open source site. It contains information about all the efforts that IBM is doing in the open source / free software area. IBM is currently participating in more than 100 projects with 600 developers including Apache, Eclipse or Cloudscape. In the site, there is lots of enfasis on innovation and open standards and its relation to open source. You can also find a collection of open source articles from the Linux Executive Report magazine.

IBM has also published a survey that they have sponsored to gauge the levels of adoption of open-source software on a total of 434 anonymous participants. The report states that 85% of the people that answered are using Linux in their companies and 46% are using Suse or Red Hat. About the uses of open source, 71% people is using it for web apps, 65% for databases and 52% for software development. And finally, another interesting data is that more than 60% of the small companies (<100 workers) are running open source messaging solutions.
