"With Red Hat Software's acquisition of Cygnus Solutions last
week, the company has established itself as the largest open source
software company in the industry, and the firm is now setting its
sights on the handheld computing market...."
"We feel that by combining Red Hat's strengths in servers and
workstation technology with Cygnus' expertise in small devices,
we're creating a compelling story for the post-PC world," Troan
says. "We think it will be very important in future enterprise
networks to have smaller devices talking back to servers on the
back end," as small networked devices begin to take the place of
portable PCs for some remote computing tasks, he says."
"Troan says having the technology for Linux server and
handheld devices under one roof will speed development of
Linux-based applications for the two platforms."
