> Well well, Dell:-)
Don't get too excited:
Dell think they can pull a fast one: selling Linux for the same price as
the equivalent offering with a Windows XP licence. Just remove the "n"
from the model and then search the Web, hitting the first result. The
truth is suddenly unravelled.
Having said that, it is nice that Dell are making progress. It is no sur-
prise either. Michael Dell gave 100 millions dollars _out of his own pock-
et_ to Red Hat Linux. That was over 6 months ago if I recall correctly, so
it was bound to happen. The open PC (void hard-drive), on the contrary,
was /more/ expensive than the equivalent with Windows. So let's call that
*progress*, but avoid unnecessary enthusiasm.
