Operating Systems Accomplishment | 1999
IBM researchers: Xxx
Where the work was done: IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
What we accomplished: Throughout the late 1990s, mainline computer systems companies had offerings only with proprietary operating systems. For example, IBM offered z/OS, AIX and OS/400. Recognizing the value of Linux and open source, IBM was the first such system company to embrace of Linux, making contributions to Linux, as well as offering it in IBM products.
