IBM LINUX TECHNOLOGY CENTER (LTC) is an organization focused on
development for the
Linux kernel and related open-source software
projects. In 1999,
IBM created the LTC to combine its software
developers interested in
Linux and other open-source software into a
single organization. Much of the LTC's early effort was focused on
making "all of its server platforms
Linux friendly." The LTC
collaborated with the
Linux community to make
Linux run optimally on
processor architectures such as x86 , mainframe , and Power . In
recent years, the focus of the LTC has expanded to include several
other open source initiatives.
Developers in the LTC contribute to various open-source projects such
