IBM signs Brazilian Linux training pact

Company says it will train 980 Sao Paulo employees in open-source software.

IBM has signed a deal to provide training in Linux and open-source software to 980 employees in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo, the company said Monday. Brazil is an aggressive adopter of the operating system and other open-source software.

IBM, which last year opened two Linux centers in Brazil and this year launched Linux consulting services, isn't the only company trying to capitalize on the process. Intel is working on its own Linux development center to make it easier for software and hardware companies in the South American country to support the operating system.
