"The prospects for Linux got rosier today as Dell Computer
joined the parade of PC makers working to make the relatively new
operating system more appealing to big business...."
"Dell has been the computer maker most closely aligned with
Microsoft and Intel--the two halves of the "Wintel" alliance--but
today's news marks a new step back from Microsoft. Under the
new arrangement, Dell will elevate Linux to the status of Microsoft
Windows and Novell Netware, building ties with Red Hat's
programmers, customer support team, sales force and others."
"There's a lot of marketing hype around this, but I think it is
a pretty significant announcement that Dell wants to push Linux,"
said Technology Business Research analyst Brooks Gray. "They're
straying more from the Microsoft platform. And clearly they've had
a lot of demand for (Linux)."
