(Via NYTimes)IBM seems to increasingly bet that it can build a big business around open-source. software. The latest step in that strategy is the purchase of Gluecode Software, an open-source start-up. The Gluecode acquisition, is small in size but significant in the evolution of the company's plans in open-source software. I.B.M. has long supported open-source software like the Linux operating system and the Apache Web server. And it has made money indirectly, mostly by selling computers that run open-source software or selling I.B.M. proprietary software that works with Linux or Apache. But Gluecode is a stand-alone open-source business, and the purchase will give I.B.M. a stake in the lower-end market for server software for running business applications.
