Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

High-performance PC specialist GamePC is to offer Linux as an OS option on its machines. Initially the company will be shipping hardware with Red Hat 6.1 installed, but it says it is also considering other distributions, including Caldera and Debian. GamePC specialises in 'no-compromise' custom-built systems designed for the high end of the gaming market, and although Linux games are starting to appear, the OS isn't what you'd expect to be a good fit for GamePC's customer base. According to company VP Phil Chiang, however, the move to Linux is being made in response to customer demand, and GamePC will be shipping machines with Linux only, or dual boot with Windows 98 or NT. ®
