Enterprise Computing: Intel throws weight behind Linux

“VA Research is receiving an investment from Intel and has
acquired the coveted Linux.com domain name for use as a portal site
dedicated to the Unix-like operating system, industry sources
said.”

“In a previous interview, VA Research chief executive Larry
Augustin said part of his company’s goal is to help the Linux
community push Linux into heavier-duty hardware systems, where many
processors are running side-by-side.”

“Obtaining the Linux.com domain is a coup for privately held VA
Research, which has sold Linux computers since 1993. The company
plans to use the domain for a general-purpose Linux site, complete
with archives, technical information and news, Linux community
sources said. VA Research will maintain the site and it will be
governed by an advisory board from the Linux community.”
