Ubuntu server momentum builds toward ‘critical mass’

| Carr said that while the deal will “hopefully be with Dell,” Canonical is 
| also considering server vendors other than Dell, and at a later date the 
| company will reveal the results of those talks. “This doesn’t mean a deal is 
| imminent, but those who want and require Ubuntu on the server will have 
| something available reasonably soon,” he said.    
| Which leads us to the present. Last week, at Linux-Watch.com, Rick Becker, 
| Dell Product Group’s vice president of applications, said Dell is currently 
| in the process of certifying Ubuntu for all its server lines. “But we are 
| still several months away from announcing a certification. I’d say it’ll be  
| announced in Q1 next year,” he said.

| Ubuntu is extremely popular on the desktop, but it's made comparatively 
| little progress on servers. That's about to change. Dell is expected to 
| announce in the first quarter of 2008 that it has certified Ubuntu Linux for 
| its server lines.    


Linux on half of all new servers? Red Hat's got plans

| The Amazon partnership is part of Red Hat's Linux Automation initiative to 
| make it easier for companies to deploy Linux applications. With it, Red Hat 
| will have its version of Linux powering over half of the world's new servers 
| by 2015 while doubling its current market share, says Scott Crenshaw, Red 
| Hat's VP of enterprise Linux business.

| Claims made by Microsoft that Linux violates its software patent have
| not affected sales of Linux-based hardware, according to Michael Dell.
| Speaking to ZDNet.co.uk at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando on
| Thursday, Dell's chief executive officer said his company has seen Linux
| uptake for servers increase faster than Windows server products, despite
| Microsoft's claims.
