It's hotting up on the European commercial Linux scene. Linux vendor Red Hat has selected mass market IT wholesaler Ingram Micro to distribute its software in Europe. And German contender SuSe is opening its first UK office "in the Greater London area". From today, Ingram will distribute the full range of Red Hat's Linux solutions. These include Red Hat Linux for Intel, Alpha and Sparc platforms, Red Hat Standard 6.1 and Deluxe 6.1. Resellers will also have access to support packs and services for Red Hat Linux 6.1 based software. The products are currently available through Ingram in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark, with plans to extend the scheme to Belgium, Finland and France. Red Hat’s European business, based in Surrey, was opened in July. ®
