"Following Acer's diverted investment in Animeta Systems Inc., Mitac International Corp. announced on July 25 that two professional software companies under the group had been launched in Shanghai and aimed to develop products based on the Linux framework. The software sector is expected to undergo structural changes after the hardware sector steps into their business."

"Mitac International President Francis Tsai said that the group has recently invested several hundred thousand U.S. dollars into each of the two Shanghai investments, and held 100 percent shares in both companies. Responding to growing market demand, the two companies will both apply the Linux framework to different hardware platforms, such as servers and PDAs, which may be extended in the future. As Shanghai has advanced technology and a wide pool of software professionals, Mitac and many other companies from the hardware sector are choosing the city as a base to expand their software operation."
