IBM taps Palmisano to replace Gerstner as CEO

"IBM's Palmisano, a decades-long IBM employee, is credited with leading a redesign of the company's entire server computer lineup, including IBM's adoption of more open industry standards such as the Linux operating system.

"Palmisano has been on the radar screen for the last few years and it would have been a major surprise if anyone but him had succeeded Gerstner," said Paul Carroll, author of "Big Blues," a book about IBM during the 1980s."
