Another Excuse From Dell

"Thanks to Michael Dell, we now know that I wasn't just yakking to hear myself talk. The big computer vendors, and one presumes their customers, still think there's too much "alienation" in Linux for them to invest in it for personal desktops.

And this, mind you, from a man with a personal stake in Red Hat and who already ships Red Hat Linux on his company's high-end boxes!"

Me: So, what you're saying is a guy with a vested interest in a particular Linux distribution would like to see less competition. Who would have thunk it.

A gold star for the reader (assuming I have a reader) who can guess where this quote comes from: "That's not a conflict of interest. It's a convergeance!"
