"Dell and Red Hat Inc. announced the One Source Alliance to
accelerate commercial adoption of the Linux operating system and to
support businesses building Internet infrastructures. Linux is now
one of three strategic operating systems Dell factory installs and
supports globally, along with Microsoft Corp.'s Windows® and
Novell Inc.'s NetWare."
"Red Hat and Dell offer customers a "pure play" for Linux
development and deployment as demand for the open source operating
system increases. Unlike many manufacturers, Dell does not have a
proprietary, in-house UNIX offering that competes for resources.
This agreement allows Dell to align its efforts with Red Hat to
deliver best-in-class Linux solutions to its customers and outlines
a tightly integrated package of joint development programs, global
services and marketing initiatives."
"Dell and Red Hat will expand their direct engineering
relationship to address the immediate high-volume business
opportunity in the Internet infrastructure buildout. Red Hat
and Dell also will focus on future core operating system
developments in the areas of reliability and availability,
including clustering, to support the maturation of Linux. A
key aspect of their development activities is next-generation open
source systems based on Intel's IA-64 platform."
