"With the backing of technology heavyweights, San Francisco-based Linuxcare on Tuesday announced it will receive $32.5 million in venture funding -- the largest single-round amount for a Linux company to date."
"It will be the second round of venture-backed funding for the 120-employee company, and possibly the last before the company tries a public stock offering, says Fernand Sarrat, Linuxcare's chief executive. The company's main backer this round is Patricof & Co. Ventures, with additional funding from Apax Partners Europe, the company announced."
"According to Linuxcare executives, the two venture backers are putting down "slightly more than a third" of the round's total amount."
