ComputerWorld: Key hardware vendors tightening their embrace of Linux

Aug 13, 2000, 21:57 (0 Talkback[s])

"Linux is expected to receive another major boost next week when several key hardware vendors step up their support for the open-source operating system at the LinuxWorld conference in San Jose."

"In fact, hardware vendors will likely dominate the show. Dell Computer Corp. CEO Michael Dell is scheduled to deliver the opening keynote address, and IBM, Hewlett-Packard Co. and Sunnyvale, Calif.-based VA Linux Systems Inc. all are due to make major Linux-related announcements."

"While IBM and, to a lesser extent, Dell have increasingly been profiling themselves as big Linux players over the past two years, HP's support has been more low-key thus far. That's expected to change at LinuxWorld, where the company plans to make a major commitment to supporting the operating system across virtually all its product lines."
