“DELL looks set to release an officially supported cut-down
server based on the freeware Linux operating system within the next
three months to drive sales in the booming entry-level market, a
senior company official said.”

“Geoff Healey, Asia-Pacific servers director for Dell Computer,

license fees, such as Microsoft’s NT.”

“‘The real competition is in the entry-level server,’ Healey
said.”
