Linux developers from China, Japan to develop Universal OS
The Nanjing-based Sun Wah Linux Limited announced Tuesday a strategic
alliance with VA Linux System Japan K.K., a leading provider of Linux solutions for
telecommunications and enterprise systems markets.
The alliance will jointly develop a universal Debian GNU/Linux
infrastructure and actively promote the adoption of Debian-based systems
in both Japan and China.
The partnership of the two companies aims to capitalize on the
competitive forces of both VA Linux's technological excellence on
server-level applications including the Linux Kernel, and SWL's rich
experience on desktop applications and knowledge of internationalization
(I18N) techniques, especially for Asian languages.
The synergy of the two core competencies and strong dedication to
Debian development assure a steep rise in the presence of Debian GNU/Linux
in the global market. And both firms will in cooperation promote the
adoption of Debian-based systems in both Japanese and Chinese domestic
markets, particularly the telecommunications and enterprise sectors in
Japan and government and public arenas in China.
