"Dell announced today its plans to give customers the option of having Red Hat Linux 6.1 factory installed by Dell on all current and future orders of their PowerEdge server models."
"The decision makes Dell the first major systems vendor to factory-install Red hat Linux across its entire server line."
"Factory installation of an operating system, particularly under the Dell "build them as they order them" model, customizes each server to exact customer specifications, which can save companies time and money during installation and deployment."
