(Other stories by Matthew W. Beale)
"Building upon a development and marketing agreement struck earlier this year, Wall Street sensation Red Hat Software, Inc... and Compaq Computer Corp... are partnering on enterprise-level user support for Linux in the corporate market.
Under the terms of the new agreement, Compaq will offer international enterprise users call center support for Red Hat's distribution of the Linux OS through its Customer Services organization. More advanced issues, however, will be forwarded to Red Hat's services and support structure."
"Compaq will also be involved, with the assistance of its clientele, in customizing the Red Hat package through the support process. Red Hat will examine subsequent modifications for possible inclusion in future versions of its OS.
Modifications that Compaq makes to Red Hat Linux will then be made freely available to the open-source software community under the GNU General Public License (GPL)."
