The Register: HP scales up Euro Linux supportFeb 05, 2001, 14:27 (0 Talkback[s])
"Hewlett-Packard's announcement of major amounts of Linux support at the New York LinuxWorld Expo was supplemented at the Linux Expo in Paris last week with the announcement of preloaded Linux distributions on some of its server products and the formation of support and training teams throughout EMEA, writes Bruce Tober."
"Meanwhile, in Paris at the Third Annual Linux Expo, Bruno Cornec, HP's Linux Program Manager for EMEA told The Register that "implementation of most of what the company announced in New York will be individually defined in each country. In France, for example, we will make technical support for our Linux products available up to the mission critical stage, which is something we already do for all the other Operating Systems."
"Another EMEA initiative in the move to Linux is the preloading the open source OS on the company's recently announced LP1000 servers. "These will be loaded with a RedHat-based distribution which we've adapted to fit the needs of a server rather than client machine," Cornec said. "It includes corporate software and a customisation package."
