Linux

For nearly a year Ageia has been making headlines with its innovative physics technology that they hope will revolutionize game-play not only for PC games but also console platforms such as Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360.

That's IBM's big challenge: Translating its open source expertise into real, differentiated value for developers on its cloud. Read more
