VA Linux plans name change to VA Software

Author: JT Smith

The press release is over at Excite.com. VA Linux Systems Inc. is asking shareholders to approve changing the
company's name to VA Software Corp., according to proxy materials filed Tuesday with the Securities and Exchange
Commission.

The Sunnyvale, Calif., company said the name VA Software better identifies the company's primary business of developing its
SourceForge collaborative software development platform. The company said the name VA Linux is identified with its former
Linux hardware systems and consulting businesses. (VA Linux owns NewsForge.)
