open source IT services company, today announced it is joining the Open
Source Development Labs (OSDL), a global consortium dedicated to accelerating

"We are pleased to work with SpikeSource on OSDL initiatives," said Stuart
Cohen, CEO of OSDL. "Membership and participation from SpikeSource reinforces
that OSDL is a central place where vendors, end users and the development
community can come together to effectively accelerate the adoption of Linux
in the enterprise."

telecommunications, in the enterprise data center and on corporate desktops.

where corporations are not beholden to specific vendor solutions and where
best-of-breed assembly helps companies run their businesses better," said Kim
Polese, SpikeSource CEO. "SpikeSource is looking forward to working with
other OSDL members to help further this vision."
