Submission + - IBM's Answer to Windows 7? Ubuntu Linux (internetnews.com)

This is the same thing that was announced a few weeks back for Africa, and now it's available in the U.S. The big push is that IBM claims it will cost up to $2,000 for a business to move to Windows 7. They argue that moving to Linux is cheaper.
