Tony Copeland, Director of Sales and Marketing at LHS, said "As beneficiaries of the hard work and dedication of the Linux community we are glad that we could offer assistance to the Debian team and encourage the further development of Linux as a whole."

The server has a retail value of $6100 and has been custom configured to address the specific needs of the Debian team.

Linux Hardware Solutions President Kit Cosper said, "When we became aware that the Debian Project was in need of a new server we opened a dialog to determine how LHS could provide the maximum level of service and support to the dedicated people that constitute the Debian team. After discussing the options we assembled a system to serve not only their present needs, but future expansion as well."
