    They seem like a bunch of cowards to me Mushroom because they claimed that they were going to come out with them years ago.

    I think you should wait until this news goes mainstream before getting to excited about this.

    IBM is the big Linux threat to Microsoft, but to have Dell and others on board would be nice also.

    Novell is the real deal Mushroom and they came out with news the other day also, do you have that link or would you like me to post it?

    I was suprised to see them offering Red Hat rather than SuSE, but any good distro is good news.

    There are a lot of people out there that can not or do not wish to install an OS them selfs and they to can now have Linux.

    RedHat is the standard business Linux here in the U.S. SuSE isn't big in the states.

    Lots of small companies are selling Linux servers now -- for less than Dell.

    I'm a FreeBSD guy. Linux is... not comparable.
