IBM sets Linux desktop deadline

In an internal memo, IBM executives are encouraged to switch to Linux on the desktop by the end of 2005.
No less effort will do certainly, and it still sounds a bit weak to me.
I think it is useful to compare the effort to that other great desktop effort: Microsoft's Longhorn evangelism and pre-release program. The Longhorn promotion is being carried out with great force and demands of total commitment by everybody at Microsoft. It is clearly the focus for Microsoft. That's a considerable overperformance compared to a leaked internal executive only memo. The results could very well be proportionally more impressive.
