"...The second Linux company to announce wide-ranging layoffs and expense cuts is TurboLinux, makers of the TurboLinux distribution and clustering software. "The main reason we're doing it is just market realities," said Lonn Johnson, TurboLinux' VP of Marketing. "In the old days, not just Linux companies but lots of companies were going as quickly as possible to grab market share, build products, develop technologies, and do all kinds of stuff. The market said, 'That's cool, you can worry about profitability later.' You can certainly see in the last month, that that's no longer cool, and you need to have a pretty clear path to profitability."
"...This is the first of the Week in Review series, to be published every Saturday morning."
