"Mission Critical Linux announced today that it has launched its presence in Eastern Europe and expanded its U.S. operations with a full-service operations center in California. The Company has chosen Hungary as the seat of its Eastern European operations and is planning to establish a strong competency center for development, operations and support services under the leadership of Csaba Bodnar, a seasoned professional services manager with extensive SCO Unix and Tru64 Unix development and support experience. The European expansion allows Mission Critical Linux to capitalize on the rapid deployment of Linux in several of its key markets, including the ISP, ASP and financial services industries."

"The California office, directed by Tom McNeal, a Hewlett-Packard veteran, will focus on Linux opportunities in Silicon Valley. As Director of Engineering and Operations, McNeal will be responsible for establishing a West Coast full-service operations center. McNeal brings more than 20 years of software development experience to the Company, including contributions to HP's MPE/XL and HP-UX operating systems, and most recently, HP's NFS Kernel and Performance projects."

"In addition to his many years of development and management experience, McNeal has published numerous articles relating to NFS and other subjects in such publications as Byte Magazine and Interact Magazine."
