Move over Linux - IBM's Dumping You for Second Life

IT managers in companies of all sizes will need to add Linden Dollars to their budgets if they want to buy virtually from IBM at Second Life.

IT managers in companies of all sizes will need to add Linden Dollars to their budgets if they want to buy virtually from IBM at Second Life.IBM is good at nurturing emerging markets. They pumped so much cash into the ecosystem of Linux, it was destined for success. Well, they have found a new maiden to court in the virtual world with Second Life, and it looks like they are pushing the envelope on how you will engage customer service.

Now, in addition to buying IBM gear from your local reseller or sales team, you can contact a virtual Business Center in Asia!

If you believe IBM is good at picking the next big thing, then get yourself an Avatar, take out your Linden dollars and spend away.
