Dell likes Linux

Dell Computer has begun installing the newest version of Linux from Red Hat--version 7.1--on all its servers and on some workstations, Dell said Wednesday. Version 7.1 comes with version 2.4 of the Linux kernel, the heart of the operating system. Linux, a clone of Unix, competes with Microsoft's Windows and Sun Microsystems' Solaris, among other products. Several companies sell the operating system, but Red Hat has the largest share of the market, according to research company International Data Corp.
