Computer Associates International Inc., the No. 3 U.

Computer Associates International Inc., the No. 3 U.S. software supplier, and Red Hat Inc, a distributor of Linux software, said Wednesday they entered a sales and distribution pact that gives Linux more credibility in business software management.

Under the agreement, Red Hat will distribute CA's business management software with its Red Hat Linux Enterprise Edition series. In turn, CA's sales force will sell Red Hat's business support agreements to its Unicenter TNG clients. -- Reuters
