Red Hat to Push Desktop Linux with Intel Partnership
by Dan Burger

Matthew Szulik, Red Hat's chief executive officer, is a soft-spoken man--more of an actions-speak-louder-than-words kind of guy. In his keynote address at the opening of the Red Hat Summit in San Diego last week, he tip-toed his way through topics that would make most corporate marketing executives cringe. Not that Szulik downplays his company's achievements or passes up opportunities to pin the tail on the Microsoft donkey. He just doesn't shout it out or unfurl it on signs that are four-stories tall.

IBM Sees Green in Going Green in Data Centers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

In New York City last Thursday, when the weather was just starting to get a little muggy but the air conditioning was cranking so high in the Helen Mills Theater that you could just about hang sides of beef on the stage, IBM announced a new initiative, dubbed Project Big Green, under which it will sell technology and services to help the world's data centers consume less power as they support expanding IT workloads.

As I See It: Education--the Other Dysfunction
by Victor Rozek

"For the cost of 15 B-2 bombers, we can give three million teachers real incentives to raise student achievement and stay in the classroom." Now hold on.
