Dell using Linux as educational spearhead

It's committed to NT, except not completely

Further details of Dell's foray into the Linux market were revealed to the The Register today. Last year we exclusively revealed that Dell was dabbling with the Unix clone. A senior executive at the company said that while it was still "absolutely committed" to the Wintel platform, it was responding to customer requests by shipping the operating system. The source said that higher educational establishments across Europe had asked it to provide Linux-based systems. Dell was responding to customer demand and was shipping products to this specialised market, the source said. Yesterday, we revealed that Dell was shipping systems using the Alpha chip (see Dell using Alpha chips in servers). ® See also Linux to become a 'core OS' for HP, SGI
