"IT and network solutions provider Fujitsu Ltd. (Nasdaq: TMIC) has entered into a strategic alliance with Caldera Systems, Inc. to distribute OpenLinux. The deal marks Fujitsu's official entrance into the increasingly popular world of the Linux open-source operating system (OS)."

"Fujitsu will factory-install OpenLinux 2.3 and future versions of Caldera Systems' Linux OS on its servers, including the GranPower series. Additionally, Fujitsu will work with Caldera's service, education and certification programs to add value to the new Linux-based solutions that will be offered to its corporate customers."

"We began seriously watching Linux a year ago, and in that time we've seen it grow from a relatively unknown technology to a business OS -- especially in the server area," commented Kanzunari Morimoto, general manager of Fujitsu's software business promotion group. "The benefits of lower development costs, combined with unprecedented stability and customization really garnered a lot of attention from our customers."
