the further development of Linux as a whole."

 The server has a retail value of $6100 and has been custom configured to
address the specific needs of the Debian team.

 Linux Hardware Solutions President Kit Cosper said, "When we became aware
that the Debian Project was in need of a new server we opened a dialog to
determine how LHS could provide the maximum level of service and support
to the dedicated people that constitute the Debian team.  After discussing
the options we assembled a system to serve not only their present needs,
but future expansion as well."
