Dell declined to comment as to its future development projects, but it did indicate that it has been favorably pleased with its sales of Linux-based OS PCs.
Several privately held companies offer standardized versions of Linux that they support, including Novell, Red Hat and Shuttleworth’s own company, Canonical. Linux has long been viewed as a OS threat to Microsoft’s Windows OS.
