"Linux is not immune to the IT industry's climactic shift in
focus to services. A handful of vendors, including Silicon Graphics
Inc., Mission Critical Linux LLC and Andover.Net Inc., will
highlight the "S" word at the LinuxWorld trade show in New York
"The challenges specific to Linux's underpinnings make it a
natural candidate for third-party services. The flexibility
Linux offers as an open-source environment can also make it hard
for companies to get their arms around development projects."
"That's where companies such as SGI, Mission Critical and
Andover come in. Each will offer services designed to get
enterprise customers up and running on Linux without the
constraints of doing its own application development."
