LinuxPR: LinuxBox Joins with OpenAvenue to Create the Leading Portal for Open-Source Development Projects

Sep 08, 1999, 14:03 (0 Talkback[s])

OpenAvenue Inc., a privately held, WEB-based company located in Scotts Valley, California, and LinuxBox, a leading hosting facility for open-source projects, today announced that LinuxBox has joined OpenAvenue. Under the terms of the agreement, LinuxBox becomes a part of the OpenAvenue portal while still preserving its brand and operational capabilities. In addition, the founders of LinuxBox are joining the OpenAvenue corporate structure in charge of community management for all Linux open-source projects.

"We are confident that this will benefit the open-source community since our site has always been highly supported by the Linux community, but lacked commercial support to make it viable in the long term," stated Chris Gann, founder of LinuxBox. "By providing a world-class infrastructure for our site, such as the one that OpenAvenue has deployed, we have made sure that increasingly more software development projects can come to us without worry. Moreover, OpenAvenue and LinuxBox share the belief that software development projects conducted under open-source and community-based licensing are creating a huge transformation in the software industry, a transformation that needs to be supported while it keeps gaining critical mass."

"OpenAvenue hosts application development content provided by individual and corporate content owners, and makes it available to a world-wide community of software developers under open-source, community-based and private licensing. As the projects hosted by LinuxBox are incorporated into OpenAvenue and added to the hundreds already in the process of being hosted, the portal becomes the most comprehensive portal in hosting open-source and community based software development projects.
