Linux server maker finds European partner

Author: JT Smith

From CNet: "French computer maker Bull has invested in Linux server maker Penguin Computing, and the companies
agreed to tackle the European Linux market together.
Under the agreement , Bull will sell Penguin Computing servers packaged with its own services in Europe, the companies said.
The alliance elevates the Linux prospects of two companies striving to deal with
larger or better-known competitors. San Francisco-based Penguin Computing
plays second fiddle to Linux specialist VA Linux Systems, and Penguin
Computing and Bull both face competition from big-name companies such as
IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Compaq Computer and Dell Computer." (Disclosure: VA Linux owns NewsForge.)
