February 14 - VALinux Systems ... off and running ... hard!

Remember the recent spectacular VALinux IPO? Clearly, many investors
properly saw the company as a leader in the Linux field.  Joseph E. Arruda
is its Corporate Alchemist; he is responsible for Technology Evangelism
and Business Development.  He notes that while VA Linux Systems is often
seen as only a hardware company, it is closer to a full systems
integration house with additional emphasis in services and advanced R&D
for Linux.  Clusters and scientific computing are very much on its
roadmap.  What differentiates VA from other firms, what is its current
work with scientific computing, and what channels are available for
working with business development and partnering with VA?  Joseph will
