Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

ZDNet has bought LinuxDevices.com for an undisclosed sum, but probably for less than finding enough knowledgeable, authorititive journalists to cover the embedded OS patch itself. In the press statement announcing the deal, Dan Rosenweig, ZDNet's president and CEO, makes a nod in the direction of editorial content - "Rick Lerbaum has created a killer site" - before getting down to the serious business of talking commerce. LinuxDevices.com's sponsor list "reads like a 'who's who' of the embedded Linux market," Rosenweig says. "We're excited about the dual benefits of this acquisition: providing our millions of workplace visitors with access to this top-notch resource, and taking advantage of the opportunity to build deeper relationships with LinuxDevices.com's sponsors." We suspect that ZDNet will mop up a few more Linux sites (32-Bits Online, anyone?). As ever, money, not community, talks. ®
