Linux desktop vendor Xandros reorganizes

Filed under

On October 18, Linux distributor Xandros was reorganized, resulting in the loss of at least five jobs and a change in CFOs. The company, which positions its desktop-oriented Linux distribution as an easy migration path from Windows, has never gained significant momentum in the market.

One source told that ten employees had been cut from the small business, including staff in tech support, marketing, and sales.

According to Xenia von Wedel Rosen, the firm's outside public relations representative, however, Xandros actually lost five employees, and they were all from marketing. This was part of a reorganization of the company, she said.

In addition, Xandros has a new CFO, Spencer Hayman, and will be taking a new marketing direction. Sources close to the company indicate that Xandros may be switching from focusing on the Linux desktop market to servers.
