“Linux should gain ground next month when Compaq starts
pre-loading it on servers.”

“Next month, Compaq and Red Hat Software Inc. plan to announce a
deal to deliver Red Hat Linux Version 5.2 preloaded on Compaq
servers, according to sources close to the companies. Compaq will
also offer 24-by-7 service and support for the Linux-based servers,
the sources said.”

“with Compaq on board and IBM and Dell Computer Corp. also
offering custom Linux systems.”
