" 'We've made a strategic investment in Linuxcare because of its central position in the Linux market and clear focus on enabling the adoption of Linux in the enterprise,' general partner John Doerr said in a statement.
The investment is notable in light of the tension between the traditional ways companies handle intellectual property and the much freer open-source underpinnings of Linux."
" 'We are intrigued by the rapid growth of Linux and the opportunities for companies supporting the open-source model,' Doerr said in the statement."
