"Linbox, a French Linux company specializing in certified and ready-to-use Linux systems, has secured an investment of 2.5 million Euros, or $2.25 million, June 8. Europ@web, a collector and manager of Internet-related companies, and Financiére de Brienne, a venture capital company, both contributed to the investment."

"Linbox intends to develop its range of professional services with these funds, according to a company release. Linbox's range of clients includes schools, small organizations and company networks needing a system that is easy to install and maintain, and is compatible with extant applications and operationg systems (OSs). The Linux Network Architecture (LNA) developed by Linbox is based on diskless standard computers on the desktop paired with full-featured servers."

"The Linbox Network Architecture allows users and systems integrators to bring the power of Linux to the desktop at minimal costs while still preserving user investments in Windows or MacOS software," said Jean Pierre Laisné, CEO of Linbox. "Diskless Linbox Net Stations can be set up in a matter of minutes by users with no previous skills in the Linux environment and require no maintenance."
