HP is making $25 million out of free GNU/Debian Linux

If you think you can’t make money by supporting free community-based Linux distributions.. think again.

The maker of sever and printer called Hewlett Packard (HP) is making $25 million by supporting the free Debian GNU/Linux distribution through out in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

So it is turn out to be a challenge to commercial distributions from Novell and Red Hat.

It now plans to have all Proliant and Blade System Servers supported by Debian fairly soon 😀

HP support is set for the Debian Sarge release, which debuted in June 2005. Wade marketing manager of open source and Linux at HP, noted that HP is working toward certifying its hardware against the upcoming Debian Etch release, which is set for a 2007 rollout.
