"TurboLinux, the high performance Linux company, today announced platinum sponsorship support, the highest level, for Linux Professional Institute (LPI), the leading provider of vendor-neutral training certification on Linux."

"LPI is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to standardized, high-quality Linux certification in the spirit of Linux Standard Base (LSB)."

"TurboLinux is committed to Open Source and vendor-neutral standards bodies for Linux," said Cliff Miller, CEO of TurboLinux. "Joining companies such as IBM, SGI and Linuxcare in Platinum level support for the important work of LPI is a tangible measure of our commitment. Customers should have the freedom of choice and not be locked into one vendor in the critical area of certifying Linux engineers to the highest level. And the market is best served when certification standards are open and independent, judged and determined by unbiased experts."
