"Motorola Computing Group and Egan-Managed Capital have taken equity investments in Lineo, a company pushing the Linux operating system into small devices."
"The expected investment from the Motorola Computing Group, first reported in October by CNET News.com, tightens the ties between Lineo and Motorola, which is developing Linux servers guaranteed to stay up and running 99.999 percent of the time."
"In addition, Lineo got a new member of its board of directors: John Egan, a board member and former executive vice president at storage firm EMC now with Egan-Managed Capital. Egan Managed Capital also invested in Caldera Systems, a Linux software seller that's Lineo's sister company. Lineo's Embedix version of Linux for non-PC devices is based on Caldera Systems' version of Linux for desktops and servers."
