Mandriva aims its Linux at Mexican enterprises
France-based Mandriva Linux and a local partner, Datacomms-Genesys, on Dec. 21 established a subsidiary company -- Mandriva Mexico -- to market its desktop and server operating systems in the Central American country. The office will be located at Datacomms-Genesys' complex in Mexico City.
Recent research indicates that about 34 percent of servers in Mexico will be Linux-based by 2009.
Mandriva Mexico plans to focus on three key initiatives:
* Developing a nationwide support network
* Offering training events for organizations, people, and associates
* Making Mandriva products available through Mexican OEMs and VARs
