Sweet, another heavy-weight has entered the open source ring. Zdnet is reporting that Intel has decided that it wants to play a roll in Linux's evolution, not unlike IBM. Their widely used security software, Common Data Security Architecture (CDSA), will become open source when Version 3.0 is released next month.
"On May 15 we will be posting (CDSA) on an Intel server where anyone can freely download the software," Terry Smith, Intel's CDSA marketing manager told Zdnet news." We'll release an Itanium/Linux version in August."
Wow, bravo Intel. Nice to see the "Big Guns" in the computer industry taking an interest in open source and Linux. You can check out the rest of this press release here.
