“Dell Computer has signed up San Francisco-based LinuxCare to
provide global support for Dell computers shipping with the
Unix-like operating system.”

“And beginning Monday, customers who buy a Dell PowerEdge server
with Linux will get a coupon entitling them to one incident’s worth
of one-day response from LinuxCare. The coupon can be redeemed for
Web- or email-based technical support.”

“While many have criticized Linux for lack of formal support,
that situation is changing as new companies spring up to fill the
perceived need. Hewlett-Packard, for example, is adding a section
on Linux to its Web-based technical support database.”
