Dell Joins Microsoft + Novell Linux Pact

Post by wolfden » Tue May 08, 2007 5:27

Calling Linux and Windows the "two platforms of the future," Novell this morning hailed the entry of Dell as the first systems vendor to join the Microsoft + Novell pact, as a reseller of Microsoft's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server certificates. The deal effectively makes Microsoft a real Linux distributor for the world's #2 supplier of servers.

dell is a confusing company. first i like them because they were cheap, next i dont like them becasue their cheap systems are lower quality, now i like them becasue they are supporting linux by shipping systems with linux preinstalled, now i have to rethink it over with this info. sigh. why cant there just be a computer vender who outright dislikes microsoft completely?

then again corporations change attitudes fast and often. i am going to wait before i jump to a rash conclusion. i gotta make decisions based on actions not words. considering how much enthusiasm there was to put linux on dell's there will be similar for staying away from a pact. we swayed them once lets see if we can do it again.

(ya i am staying optimistic, things are easier this way)
