Today, IndyBox Systems
(based in Indianapolis, Indiana) announced they would be lowering
the price of their Intel Pentium II/III based XL Series to
$675, with one of the many Linux distributions pre-installed
and optimized with the latest stable kernel and X server. Their 4U
rack mountable XL version starts at $900, with a wide array of
hardware options all optimized for Linux.
IndyBox Systems Chief Executive Charles Martin said "with the
recent price cuts to the Pentium II, III and Xeon processors by
Intel, they are clearly trying to stagger their pricing cuts along
individual product lines . . . given there have been no price
reductions in their Celeron processors since April of 1999. We are
not waiting for their next anticipated announcement -- we will not
keep our customers in limbo while they try to decide on pricing for
Martin added, "we remain focused in providing the lowest cost of
ownership for Linux systems. No one vendor can bully the market,
whether they feel they have a monopoly or not. Pricing is a
function of supply and demand, not simply Intel executives ordering
a 'price drop'."
