VA Research Buys Linux Consulting Firm

Linux computer vendor VA Research has acquired Electric Lichen, a Linux
consulting and marketing company.

Electric Lichen helped IBM, Informix, and several Linux distributors set up
their Linux marketing campaigns, VA Research said. Terms of the deal were
not disclosed.

More significant, though, is the fact that the acquisition gives VA
Research two key people: Jim Gleason and Don Marti, both officials in large
Linux user groups.

"They have an extensive network into the Linux community. Any additional
links into the Linux community are good for a Linux company," said Brian
Biles, VA Research's new vice president of marketing.

Marti is head of marketing for the Silicon Valley Linux Users' Group, and
Gleason is president of the New York Linux Users Group.
