"Dell sees Linux as great negotiating leverage in their
relationship with us... "Now, lets interject what I am asking into
the picture... We invest big, big $$ in Dell. We will continue to
invest big, big $$ in Dell. I am asking that we do this investment
with our eyes wide open. I do not want to invest $$ in Dell to fund
their Red Hat efforts. I am asking that: a) we be quite
prescriptive in our investments with Dell relative to the
competitive threats we see with Linux b) we constantly benchmark
ourselves against the actions they do with RedHat"
