February 02, 2000
Linuxcare Inc., a recognized leader in providing services for Linux, announced today at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo the launch of a major global advertising campaign in support of the Open Source movement. Themed 'Support for the Revolution', the branding campaign is addressed to CIOs and mid-level IT managers at Fortune 1000 companies who are considering or adopting the Linux operating system. The campaign communicates Linuxcare's commitment to Linux as a viable solution for mission-critical enterprise applications, and leadership in providing comprehensive support to business customers. The advertising launch follows on the heels of several major initiatives, including the expansion of support services that Linuxcare provides around the world; and the acquisitions of The Puffin Group and PROSA, leaders in Linux and Open Source development and consulting. Founded in December 1998, Linuxcare supports all major distributions of Linux on all major platforms. The company has amassed an unparalleled talent pool of Linux experts and has built a global state-of-the-art services infrastructure. The new ad campaign, 'Support for the Revolution', kicks off what Linuxcare believes will be a very exciting long-term branding campaign.
