LinuxPR: Mission Critical Linux Accelerates Global Expansion With European And North American Locations

“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.”
