Linux profile grows; Dell, Red Hat team up

"We've seen considerable growth to the Linux operating system," Lambert said.

Dell hopes to broaden its offering of Red Hat Linux into the next-generation internet space.

"We see immediate opportunity for (Red Hat Linux) in the internet appliance space and the rack-dense front-end server market," Lambert said.

Mentioning Sun Microsystems by name, Lambert said Dell's adoption of Red Hat Linux would allow the company to compete directly with Sun's Solaris operating system, which has a firm grip on the rack-dense front-end server market.

Dell will also promote and develop a Red Hat Linux offering that will operate on Intel's upcoming IA-64 architecture, scheduled to arrive later this year.

"(Red Hat Linux) will grow to be used in more mission-critical data centres currently dominated by Unix," Lambert added.

All Dell Solution Centres will be fully Linux-enabled to provide support.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
