Dear valued Open magazine subscriber:

As one of our subscribers interested in expanding Linux learning, we 
are pleased to send you the January issue of IBM's Linux 
magazine-on-the-Web, The Linux Line. Whether you're interested in tutorials on how to 
capitalize on the capabilities of Linux software or seeking IT 
assessments, The Linux Line, like Open, is a useful roadmap for following Linux 
as it continues taking the IT world by storm.

In this month's issue: Bill Zeitler, Senior Vice President and Group 
Executive, IBM Systems Group, tells how Linux is changing the way that 
governments and companies operate; Red Hat CEO Matthew Szulik talks about 
the continued expansion of Red Hat into the global marketplace; SUSE 
LINUX and IBM launch the Software Integration Center at the IBM Toronto 
Lab; and Novell joins OSDL. 

You'll also read about Red Hat Enterprise Linux V3 as the first 
enterprise Linux platform to be certified by Free Standards Group on all LSB 
Runtime Environment architectures; SteelEye's support of IBM ServeRAID; 
how City University of New York has inked a deal for the largest IBM 
eServer zSeries system ever purchased for a Linux workload; and more.

We hope you enjoy your subscription to The Linux Line.

open communities and IBM's commitment to Linux in an ad campaign last 
fall. He returned to US national television during the National Football 
League playoff game on Jan. 10th.The Prodigy has taken his message--that 
Linux is open and growing--even further: "Linux is working," "Linux 
solves problems," and "Linux is everywhere in the real world."  View it at 

All the best,
