"In an attempt to attain the status of better-known rivals, Linux seller Caldera Systems has invested $3 million in Ebiz Enterprises, which operates LinuxMall.com and The Linux Store."

"The investment will be used to create PartnerAxis, a Linux-focused Web site where specialized software companies can tap into a network of "resellers" who install the software and sell the products to customers, Jeffrey Rassas, chief executive of Ebiz Enterprises, said today."

"PartnerAxis began at Caldera under the project name Electronic Linux Marketplace, said Dean Taylor, leader of the project and one of 11 Caldera employees who will transfer to Ebiz. Taylor has been the executive vice president of marketing for Caldera."

"The $3 million should be enough for Ebiz to bring the PartnerAxis division to profitability, Rassas said. He expects this to happen in 12 months."
