Why Wont Dell Promote Its Linux Desktops?
Opinion: Perhaps because its partner Microsoft doesn't want it (or any other major PC vendor) to. (DesktopLinux)Last Thursday, when I wrote about Dells new Linux desktop, was one of the most frustrating days of my professional life. My eWEEK colleague John Spooner and I tried our best to get Dell to confess that they really had released an honest-to-God Linux desktop. But Dell simply wouldnt do it.
I have been following Linux since Linus Torvalds was a graduate student, and Dell since Michael Dell moved his computer sales operation out of his dorm room. I think theyve done something new here.
