emptybody was the first of you to write in with this
PC Week story
that Compaq is about to ship RedHat 5.2
bundled on some of its servers, and provide 24-by-7 support
for them. This apparently will save time for them, since they
currently pre-load Linux by hand. If this is becoming a problem,
it suggests demand for Linux Servers is increasing.
Gateway also expects to deliver such servers by the end of the
year. Kim Brown, an analyst at Dataquest Inc, says this means
Compaq is walking away from SCO, and that Linux is starting to
be acknowledged as the low-end Unix alternative.
