Lineo sets up Linux server-appliance unit

Linux company Lineo has established a wholly owned subsidiary called Snapgear to sell special-purpose server appliances, the company said Tuesday. The products, on sale now for prices less than $300, will handle tasks such as setting up a protective firewall, adding storage space to the network or establishing encrypted connections called "virtual private networks" (VPNs). Snapgear servers, which use a version of Linux from Lineo, are designed for small-business customers, Lineo said.
