IBM, Red Hat to push Linux in emerging markets

IBM and Red Hat are expected to detail an alliance Friday to push Linux into India, China and Russia.

The effort is part of an effort to "unseat Microsoft's dominance" among software developers in those emerging markets as well as in more established ones, according to a press advisory. It's similar to a partnership IBM began last year with Novell, the second-ranked Linux seller after Red Hat.
