BOSTON (01/25/2000) - Computer Associates International Inc. (CA) and Red Hat Inc. have scraped plans for a press conference in New York tomorrow because of bad weather up and down the U.S. East Coast. However, the pair still plan to announce new software for the Linux operating system via a teleconference tomorrow that also will be broadcast over the World Wide Web.
CA President and Chief Operating Officer Sanjay Kumar and Red Hat President and Chief Executive Officer Matthew Szulik are scheduled to jointly make the announcement at 11:30 a.m. EST, according to a media alert sent out by CA.
Details regarding the Linux product were not provided, though the media alert calls the software "ground breaking."
