"Sweden's telecom operator and Internet provider Telia is set to pioneer the free Linux computer operating system for its entire Internet services business TeliaNet, industry sources said on Thursday."

"TeliaNet hopes switching to a Linux-based computer will enable it to cut prices and increase reliability and availabilty of its Web service, the sources said."

"It is believed to be one of the first implementations of Linux in a commercial service, and a debut for an Internet service provider...."

"The Linux win, which is expected to be announced later on Thursday, will mean that all of TeliaNet's 800,000 private Internet customers in Scandinavia and 1,000 corporate clients, will be serviced by a single supercomputer in Copenhagen."
