"Open source operating system (OS), Linux, took a step on to the corporate desktop with news that Dell in the US is offering the free software on its Dimension desktops from October, and on Inspiron laptops by the end of the year."
"The decision marks the first big step away from the server and high-end workstation market for the Linux OS."
"Steve Smith, alliances manager for workstations for EMEA at Dell, said: "This week in Europe we are shipping two Poweredge server models, two desktop models from the Precision range and the GX1 workstation, but that's all for the moment."
