"Linuxcare has expanded its reach with a new deal to help provide services to Compaq Computer business partners."
"Linuxcare will provide technical support for the use of Linux by partners in the Compaq Solution Alliance, a group of companies that provide software for Compaq computers based on either Intel chips or Compaq's own Alpha chips."
"Under the deal, Linuxcare will provide technical and engineering support for those who need help with the upstart, open-source operating system. In essence, Linuxcare will help software companies revamp their programs so they works on Linux. Because Linux is a clone of the well-established Unix operating system, that revamping often isn't terribly difficult."
