"The Linux Insider (www.LinuxInsider.com), one of the anchor sites on the NewsFactor Network, is now offering a free Internet content service for webmasters, Web site owners, and developers of Linux-related sites. This new service provides breaking Linux and Open Source news headlines, updated continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

"The fast-growing popularity of the Linux operating system has spawned thousands of Linux-focused Web sites. Yet, Web site owners are quickly realizing how difficult and time-consuming it is to provide fresh, exciting content that attracts new and repeat visitors to their sites. The Linux Insider FreeNews Feed enables webmasters to download a single line of programming code that is easily inserted into any Web page, thereby causing dynamically updated Linux news headlines to appear on that page. Once in place, the news headlines, gathered from the top news sources around the world, are updated automatically every five minutes. The code is available in multiple formats, including HTML, text-only, RSS, and XML. It is also easily tailored to filter only news about specific Linux-related sub-topics, such as kernel news, databases, Red Hat, Caldera, Debian, Mandrake, TurboLinux, SuSE, Corel, Slackware and more."

"Our FreeNewsFeed service provides a win-win deal for Linux Web site owners and for the Linux Insider," said David Geller, spokesperson for the NewsFactor Network. "Webmasters can provide their readers with extremely sophisticated dynamic news content for their sites, at no charge and with little effort. In return, our headline news service gains a new and expanded audience of Web surfers interested in the latest Linux-related news. We have invested in the development of this service to provide other Linux Web sites with top-notch news headlines as a marketing initiative for the Linux Insider."
