Dell bets on Linux to capture enterprise market

Filed under
Linux

In the Wintel-systems market, Dell is king of the hill. But what do you do when your hill just isn't big enough?

"To some extent, Dell is seen as more of an SMB kind of player," says Judy Chavis, director of business development for the enterprise products group at Dell.

If Dell is to continue to grow, making inroads into the enterprise market is essential. Chavis wants the world to know that her group is doing just that, with the help of an unlikely ally: Linux.

Full Story.

DELL'S SERVICE SUCKS (AS IN BLOWS, STINKS, AIN'T WORTH A SHIT, ETC)

I used to be a HUGE Dell fan (10 years or so ago) and recommended them to anyone that asked my opinion on what to buy, but for the last 10 years quality has turned mediocre and their service SUCKS.

I would NEVER, EVER buy a DELL, and tell everyone I can to run away fast from any piece of shit DELL is hawking at the moment. I threatened to quit a current contract if they insisted on buying Dell for the project. I can't write enough about how much DELL SUCKS.

Linux will not change the fact, here's an idea, FIX YOUR FREAKING SUPPORT DEPT. because if you haven't got the message yet IT SUCKS.

Excellent: Android Ecosystem is Low-Margin, Fragmenting

What the figures really show is that Apple is price-gouging its customers, extracting unreasonable levels of profit by virtue of its monopoly. In the world of Android, by contrast, the fierce competition that exists between fungible manufacturers has driven down profit margins to razor-thin levels. Open source, and the level playing field that it creates, is a great way for maximising the benefits to customers, rather than companies. Read more
