"This second round of funding was led by equity investment firm Patricof & Co. Ventures and will be used, according to Linuxcare, to expand IT capabilities and pump up its domestic and international sales structure and marketing programs."

"Linuxcare is the first company in the Linux space to embrace the fact that the true value-add is customer service," commented Paul Vais, managing director of Patricof's Palo Alto, California office. "We're pleased to work with Linuxcare to enable expansion of their infrastructure to address the global opportunity for enterprise Linux services."
