"A new player in the professional services division washed up at Stormix, aimed at bumping its technical offerings to small and mid-sized businesses from simple support to full IT solutions."

"We were approached to provide services before a division was created," said Jason Fowler, manager of professional services at Stormix. "It makes sense that a company that created a Linux distribution provide professional services - there is a need that businesses perceive to hire services from a company who knows the `ins and outs' of Linux and can integrate Linux within an existing network architecture."

"Fowler recommends the expansion into professional services as a way to promote Linux use in business. "Many companies already use Linux in their IT departments," Fowler said.
