Linux server sales up at Dell

Linux servers are selling faster than Windows servers at Dell.

Tech Culture

Michael Dell, CEO of Dell, has gone on the record as saying server-side Linux is growing faster than Windows at the computer behemoth.

On the server side Linux continues to grow nicely, a bit faster than Windows. We're seeing a move to Linux in critical applications, and Linux migration has not slowed down.

Dell also noted that for all Microsoft's bluster about Linux patent violations, Microsoft hasn't given Dell a call to talk through legal liability (or anything else related to its IP) for shipping Linux servers and desktops. Given the buddy-buddy relationship between the two, one would think Dell would be one of the first to get a call. Nada.

Perhaps Microsoft is looking for a troll to sue Dell. I hear you can find them down in Texas. :-)
