"With two strikes, Deltabase may hit a Linuxcare
"Deltabase is a Linux knowledge base of Linux and open-source
operational equipment specifications and driver support. All of
this information has always been available--what program requires
which drivers to work with your specific system--but this vital
information is scattered all over the Web."
"While any Linux distribution will run on any modern Intel PC,
getting Linux to run at top performance is seen as deep technical
magic. According to David Sifry, Linuxcare's CTO, Linuxcare is
now in the business of "tailoring specific Linux distributions down
to specific systems and device drivers." This isn't pie in the sky.
Deltabase is already game tested and tried."
"You might have thought that Linuxcare's partners--given its
recent tumulus history--might be wary of doing more business with
the San Francisco based Linux technical-support firm. IBM
disagrees. Indeed, IBM, far from downplaying its Linuxcare support
relationship, is expanding it. The most important short-term result
of this renewed partnership is that IBM has had Linuxcare port
Caldera Systems' OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4 to the IBM ThinkPad A20m, a
desktop replacement laptop and the T20, a lightweight road warrior
using the Deltabase beta."
