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.

In the odd chance that a Dell flunky reads this....

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.

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
