Tucows does an Andover.net with Linux site buy

It's a pre-IPO thing, we guess

Tucows, the Canadian software download site, is pumping up its editoriaL content with the acquisition of Linux Weekly News. Terms were undisclosed. Tucows has been knocking around for years as a destination site for free and paid-for downloads. The advent of Linux, and all the various distros, suits its business down to the ground - right now, Tucows is probably the closest competitor to Freshmeat, the soon-to-be-VA Linux-owned download site. The company currently claims 100 million-plus page views impressions per month. Expect an IPO this year. ®
