Linux Laptops from Dell
Dell now has begun selling two models of its laptops with Linux preinstalled.

linux per  reliability, there is nothing Linux can offer in a notebook that Windows NT can't, after a few Service Packs. And, per usual, users considering a switch to Linux should investigate. There is a big difference between Linux on laptops and Linux on a server: if the server GUI is clunky, no one really cares (not really, but you get the idea).

VA Linux Releases NAS Server


Trying to break into the growing Network-Attached Storage market, Linux-based hardware manufacturer VA Linux has announced the release of its 9205 NAS storage server appliance.

linux per  NetFiler 800 series, VA Linux has chosen to go after the lower-end market. The NetFiler series currently tops out at over $1 Million; the VA 9205 will go for around $130K (for around 2 TB). If you only look at $/GB, the VA system provides more storage per dollar (we estimate around $65/GB vs. around $85/GB for NetApp planned 12TB system, which is expected in January 2001). Judging systems solely on the $/GB basis is risky, though. The performance comparison is less clear, since there is no single Read More
