Here is a somewhat "Official" list of Linux VARs listed by country.
Once it includes the vendors that are on my list here, I'd be happy enough to direct people straight there, eliminating need for maintenance of my VAR list.
Alternatively, I'm liable to write up a web-based application to manage the list in a quasi-automated fashion...
Red Hat Software now has a fairly sizable list of "partners" that install Red Hat Linux on systems that they sell.
It is a useful idea for local users groups to list vendors in their own area that they have found to be supportive of Linux.
