"VA Linux Systems is making a bid to increase Linux's market share where it already has a strong presence - among Internet service providers and application service providers."

"The Sunnyvale, Calif., firm is bringing out a rack-mount server with a price point similar to a midrange PC - $1,400. The VA Linux 2130 server is based on an Intel Celeron processor, 128 megabytes of random access memory and an Ultra ATA/66 IDE hard drive. It comes with the option of Gigabit Ethernet connections."

"VA Linux, along with Compaq Computer, Dell Computer, Hewlett-Packard and IBM are vying with one another to produce hefty Intel servers running Linux at the lowest possible prices. Brian Biles, vice president of marketing at VA Linux, said that until today, none of the manufacturers other than VA Linux had breached the $1,500 barrier."
