One would think that in economic downturn people would look into low
cost alternatives in any business aspect including IT infrastructure.
That should be good for Linux but the stock market shows otherwise.

So it seems that another Linux company 'bytes' the dust:

What a difference 2 years make. What's going to be there to see at the
Linux Expo this year? Boxes of old CDs, some Linux ORGs, old memories,
and perhaps a hanful of true Unix vendors.

What's left of Linux in general? More and more broken RPMs based on
RedHat distribution, and Debian with little or no commercial support.

Penguin is on cold ice again.
