"California-based Linux distribution publisher and software provider TurboLinux is laying off staff and announcinga management restructuring today. Jerry Greenberg, senior marketing v.p., says, "We built the company on the expectation of doubling every quarter. We're growing well, but not at that rate. We had to respond to it."

"Greenberg neither confirmed nor denied reports from anonymous sources that TurboLinux was laying off approximately 40 out of 120 employees and eliminating entire departments, but confirmed that his own marketing department was among those being hit hard."

"TurboLinux is in the process of acquiring LinuxCare, as first rumored on Slashdot in mid-January, and Greenburg says some of the layoffs "are in anticipation of the acquisition."
