Vodcast: Dell's Ubuntu Linux Strategy

RSS
I spent June 26 at Dell's headquarters in Austin, Texas, meeting key members of Dell's Linux team. We spent an hour discussing the broad Linux market; Dell's current Ubuntu strategy; and the PC giant's early reaction to Moblin (Mobile Linux).

This quick Vodcast captures thoughts from Dell's:
  • Todd Finch (consumer Linux system opportunities);
  • John Hull (Linux server and desktop trends); and
  • Doug Anson (Moblin's potential for small mobile devices).

Coming Soon

In addition to the Vodcast above, I'll be back soon with an in-depth blog entry describing Dell's Linux strategy (servers, desktops and mobile) in greater detail. In fact, the blog entry will answer many of the questions WorksWithU readers submitted here.

Follow WorksWithU via Identi.ca, Twitter and RSS (available now) and our newsletter (coming soon).

Joe, I can't watch the vodcast from here. But just FYI: I clicked on the RSS Feed on my Firefox feed reader, and got directed to this page: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/workswithu/~3/zSfBB4D-ccc/ With the following error message: There was an internal error retrieving this feed. The FeedBurner support team has been notified. Error 500

Leo: Sorry about that brief Feedburner problem. Glad to hear Google/Feedburner fixed it quickly for WorksWithU's reders.

Bleah my web connection slow today. Will need to watch it again later. It is interesting to put faces to the names from Dell that interact with the community.
