"Mission Critical Linux has laid off much of its
marketing staff and says it's developing business partnerships that
will take care of publicizing its high-end Linux software. But some
think the moves herald an acquisition by Linux leader Red Hat.
The July 31 job cuts brought the company's expenses into better
balance with its revenue, Chief Executive Robert Tumanic told CNET
News.com on Friday. He said they weren't an indication that Mission
Critical Linux is being packaged for sale to a company that already
has a marketing staff.
"We're not fattening the company up for sale," Tumanic said.
"Given the way these partnerships are evolving for us, it lessens
the amount of money we need to spend in marketing. The board asked
me to better align revenues to costs."
