"As Intel processors gain better performance at a lower cost, Pentium systems are becoming better suited for the enterprise. Linux, too, is increasing its share of enterprise installations, and is garnering a huge amount of publicity. This has made Linux part of the must-buy or at least must-look-at lists for IT departments."
"This month we look at a Linux server from one of the premier high-end Linux systems vendors, VA Linux Systems (VA)."
"VA sells high-end Linux workstations and servers, based on Intel processors. Typically including two or four processors, these systems represent the high end of the Intel market. VA combines the free tools on Linux with solid server hardware, adding RAID support and a special multiprocessor-enabled operating-system kernel. This isn't your grandmother's Linux system."
"The VA S3500e's overall rating is excellent, and proof that Linux has indeed come of age and is ready for the mainstream market, competing well against RISC UNIX systems, as well as Windows NT."
