HP continues buying spree, acquires HyperSpace's instant-on technologies for $12 million

,----[ Quote ]
| If youâve been as dependent on Microsoft 
| Windows for all of your computers as HP has 
| been, how do you free yourself from the tug 
| of Redmondâs gravity? Apparently you make 
| some acquisitions that give you the building 
| blocks for an alternative ecosystem. First, 
| HP purchase Palm in large part for its webOS, 
| and now itâs picked up Phoenix Technologies 
| HyperSpace assets, which includes instant-on 
| solutions.



HP leverages Linux, less known for contribution

,----[ Quote ]
| The 451 Group has published another open
| source strategy Spotlight report, this time
| turning our attention to longtime Linux server
| vendor Hewlett-Packard, which continues to
| dedicate resources to Linux and other open
| source software communities, but which also
| has a lower profile than others known for
| their open source contributions.
| HP has long been a big supporter of Linux and
| other open source software, particularly
| through its testing, certification and support
| of Linux on its ProLiant x86 and now Integrity
| IA-64-based servers. But despite its top
| market position, the company has also
| historically been overshadowed by other
| similarly supporting Linux and open source.
| [...]
| HP recognizes that users and customers â in
| financial services, insurance,
| telecommunications, healthcare, and among
| other early adopters â no longer need to be
| convinced on Linux. What they need now is
| guidance on adapting their strategy and
| effectively incorporating Linux and other open
| source software.
| More is available in the HP Spotlight report,
| which is available to existing 451 Group
| clients. Non-clients, as always, may apply for
| trial access via the same link.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
