"Lineo has wooed three new executives from better-established companies in its effort to hasten the adoption of Linux in non-PC computing devices."
"Lineo hired Richard Larsen, formerly in charge of software sales at Sun Microsystems, to lead the Linux company's entire sales operation. Larsen, with 22 years in the industry and seven at Sun, will help build a more seasoned executive team for the purveyor of Linux and other software for "embedded" computing devices, such as network equipment, set-top boxes or factory robots."
"...In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Friday, Lineo said it had pro forma revenue of $4.9 million for the nine months ended July 31. That compares with $1.4 million for the same nine-month period the year before."
