IBM software to reduce cost of using Linux, Mac systems?

IBM said on Sunday that it will offer an open desktop software system for businesses that puts the cost of managing computers running Linux or Apple's Mac OS on a more equal footing with Microsoft's Windows software, improving the economics of Windows alternatives.

The product--which the company calls its Open Client Offering--pulls together software IBM has developed in-house and with partners Novell and Red Hat to answer questions over the cost-effectiveness of managing Linux or Apple PCs alongside Windows PCs.
