"Hoping to encourage Fortune 500 firms to take on more open source development projects, VA Linux Systems on Tuesday debuted a turn-key collaboration system that allows thousands of engineers across an enterprise to work more efficiently and cost-effectively."
"The new subscription-based service is centered around VA Linux' Source Forge development environment, a Web-based, integrated development environment that features code reuse and archiving, communications capabilities to all distributed development teams, and the option to standardize on one tool set."
"We think this will enhance productivity by giving more engineers visibility to each other's software projects, thereby eliminating the possibility of reinventing the wheel inside their own companies," said John T. Hall, vice president of strategic planning for VA Linux in Fremont, Ca."
