"Bolstering its server line, Gateway has entered into an agreement to sell Cobalt Networks' line of special-purpose servers... Cobalt makes Linux-based 'server appliances,' servers designed to do a limited number of tasks with a minimum amount of fuss. The company filed to go public in September.
Through the agreement, Gateway adds server appliances to a server line that thus far has included only general-purpose machines that stemmed from its 1997 acquisition of Advanced Logic Research."
"The Cobalt machines, such as the Qube and RaQ, use the Linux operating system... It's not Gateway's first contact with Linux, though. The company announced it will custom install Red Hat Linux in September."
