Rebel.com, an Ottawa-based hardware and software vendor,
announced that 35 employees have been laid off, according to this
report in the National Post. Most of these positions are related to
the sales and marketing of the NetWinder, a Linux-based server
Rebel.com bought the NetWinder line from Corel Corp., which
holds a minority interest in the firm.
The layoffs came after a direct-sales campaign for the NetWinder
failed. The company will now be restructured into two divisions: a
software division (that has traditionally been profitable) and a
hardware division. A rumor cited by the National Post was that IBM
would invest in the firm.
