Atipa shucks Linux hardware business

Author: JT Smith

CNet reports on Atipa's woes that have been detailed elsewhere. "Atipa, which had aspired to emulate Linux computer maker VA Linux Systems, has sold off
its hardware business instead.

Back when Linux was a lucrative buzzword, the Kansas City, Mo.-based company hoped a $30
million funding round would lead to an initial public offering. Now it has sold its hardware business to
Lawrence, Kan.-based Microtech Computers for an undisclosed sum." (VA Linux owns NewsForge.)
