Author: JT Smith

From a Reuters report (on Yahoo): "VA Linux Systems Inc. on Thursday posted a large fourth-quarter loss, three months after
the company said it would exit the computer hardware business and focus on providing software and services for the alternative Linux operating system.

VA Linux posted a fourth-quarter loss of $290 million, or $5.58 per share, compared with a loss of $47.5 million and $1.15 per share in the year-ago quarter." (Editor's note: VA Linux is the parent company of OSDN, which operates NewsForge).
