We also expect Dell to continue forming strategic Linux alliances, though not with more than three or four companies. What this also reinforces is that Dell's success/future is much more tied to Intel than to Microsoft.

(We realize that the Linux phenomenon changes the Unix rules of the game, so we do not see this as a big negative). In addition, the partial opening of the source reminds us of Sun's open-but-not-really licensing of Solaris code - except Sun is (currently) in a much stronger market position, so maybe they can afford to be more restrictive. User Recommendations Corporate users will not Read More
