RED HAT, COMPAQ EXTEND PARTNERSHIP WITH SUPPORT DEAL

Red Hat established a little more credibility among corporate accounts for Linux Monday, signing a deal to provide technical support for Compaq's enterprise users.

Under the terms of the agreement, Compaq's Customer Services group will present the more difficult support issues to Red Hat's support organization. As Compaq makes changes to Linux during support efforts, Red Hat will test those changes and make them available in future versions of the operating system.

COREL'S DESKTOP LINUX TO TAKE A BOW AT COMDEX

SAN FRANCISCO -- Corel will launch its desktop version of the Linux operating system on Nov. 15, the opening day of the Comdex trade show in Las Vegas, company officials said here Monday.

Corel's goal is to offer a version of Linux that is easy enough to use to attract enthusiasts who are not necessarily computer experts, although the company is not targeting first-time buyers, said Derik Belair, a product manager with Corel's emerging technologies group.

SOFTWARE FIRMS FIGHT EU SOFTWARE PATENTS

Three European software companies have asked the European Commission to think carefully before approving a proposed directive that would allow software programs to be patented.

The companies -- German Linux distributor SuSE GmbH; Infomatec AG, a small Augsburg, Germany-based software house; and an Italian open-source software company called Prosa -- met last week with Commission representatives in Brussels to present their viewpoint, according to Hartmut Pilch, a software programmer who represented SuSE at the meeting.

DOWN TO THE WIRE - NICHOLAS PETRELEY
WHO DO YOU CALL TO REPORT A COMPUTER BREAK-IN?
IS IT TIME FOR INTERNET COPS?

LAST NIGHT, I dreamed that I was sitting in a front-row center seat at a Margaret Becker concert, when suddenly her music was disrupted by a popping noise. It was one of those sounds that invades your dreams from the real world.

The noise eventually roused me from my sleep. I got out of bed and wandered around looking for the source of the racket. It sounded like it was coming from the front of the house, so I peeked out the front door to see what was happening.
