Los Angeles, CA — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Bluepoint Linux Software Corp. announced today that the company will join forces with Intel to establish a Linux Technical Support Center in China.

According to Yu Deng, President of Bluepoint, Intel will contribute technology and equipment, and Bluepoint will deliver the management and staffing and operate the center.

The center, located in Shenzhen, is comprised of the following units: Proof of Concept (POC), Online Support, Training and Call center. The center will deliver services to both Linux solution providers and end users. From the POC center, staff experts will evaluate client business requirements and objectively recommend the most suitable software solution.

Bluepoint's Online Support Center utilizes Knowledge Base and Virtual Community to provide online technical support. Visitors can quickly and conveniently find technical information in the Knowledge Base and can get online, real time support from Linux experts.

Mr. Yu Deng, the President of Bluepoint, said: “The lack of reliable technical support and the lack of high quality Linux solutions that meet the need of the Chinese market have been a bottle-neck in the Linux development in China. Bluepoint founders have been paying close attention to the technical support problem. In 1998, Bluepoint founders established the first Linux/Unix support site in China: We are confident that, with the support from Intel, the Bluepoint's Linux Technical Support will help to push the Linux development in China to new levels.”
