TeamLinux Corporation (TLC), the newest entrant in the exploding open source and Linux arena, officially announced its launch today. The company is a professional services organization that provides customers completely integrated solutions enabled by open source / Linux technology.

Distinguishing TeamLinux is its management team's deep professional services and consulting experience, hailing from such industry-leading services powerhouses as IBM, NCR/AT&T, TRW, Vanstar, Andersen Consulting, Silicon Graphics and PricewaterhouseCoopers. TeamLinux's management team has over 150 years of collective experience in consulting and technical services, proven industry track records and credentials, with hands-on experience in advanced computing technologies.

“We identified a gap in the open source and Linux professional services sector, and we are here to fill it with our top notch professional services experience combined with open source expertise”, says Dan Maher, TeamLinux chairman and chief executive officer. Maher continued, “Our customers tell us that they need a partner who understands their business needs and can help them integrate total solutions across multiple environments including, in many cases, their legacy systems”.

TeamLinux provides the unique combination of business and technical expertise customers need to manage the shift from proprietary to open source operating environments like Linux. TeamLinux offers consulting, design, integration, migration, training and support services for many business applications, including: e-commerce, Internet-enabled business to business, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Electronic Design Automation (EDA), embedded systems, and Internet appliance applications.

“This significant new industry player is bridging a vital service and support gap in the Linux and open source marketplace by working with clients to put together all the pieces of what can be a complex puzzle”, says Bill O'Neill, President of Trident Networks, Inc., a leading web hosting and internet commerce company
