SRO: LinuxCare Prepares To Go Public, But will Linux stock fever continue?

“LinuxCare, the well-known Linux help-desk company, on Wednesday
bet its money and future on a planned $92 million IPO.”

“LinuxCare will trade on the NASDAQ under the symbol LXCR. The
IPO’s underwriters are Credit Suisse First Boston, FleetBoston
Robertson Stephens and Hambrecht & Quist.”

With this new expected influx of cash, LinuxCare plans to
stay the course as the premiere Linux support-desk operation.
Moving beyond that, however, the company also plans to start
delivering support for other open-source programs such as Apache
and Samba.
In addition, the firm plans on continuing with its
existing plans to push on into Linux hardware certification and
open-source-program training.”
