Indelible Blue also carries a growing line of commercially available Linux software applications and development tools. With technical support, the company continues its movement to becoming a full service Linux provider. Single incident, multi-incident packs, and time-based Linux support plans are available, providing flexibility to fit most individual and business needs.

"In order to become more accepted in the mainstream, Linux needs more support for users and businesses who have not previously had experience with Linux or other Open Source software," says Buck Bohac, president of Indelible Blue. "Users from other platforms who may not be familiar with UNIX, much less the Open Source model, have a different set of needs and concerns. We want to help these users become more comfortable using the Linux environment by offering them ready-to-run hardware, commercially-backed software solutions and support packages to help them get started quickly and easily."
