Apple's Mac sales rock-steady in Q1 despite Vista launch

| Apple Inc. had little to quarrel about with the latest figures from
| Gartner, which showed the Mac maker standing firm against a tidal
| wave of Windows PC sales triggered by Vista. For the first quarter
| of 2007, Mac unit shipments were up some 30 percent.

Red Hat might be Dell's choice.

Are Dell and Red Hat Discussing a Desktop Linux Deal?

| Michael Dell himself is running Ubuntu Linux at home--in addition
| to three Windows-based PCs. So there's growing speculation that Dell
| will offer Ubuntu on selected systems. If it's good enough for Michael, 
| it's good enough for the rest of us--right?
| But wait. Hold everything. Now, sources close to Red Hat tell me the
| company could have some desktop-related news to share in a few weeks
| or by the summer at the latest.


Their sales rose a whopping 41% a month ago.

Red Hat Sees Green

| The Linux operating system that Red Hat's business is built around is

| Hat rival Novell. The Waltham, Mass.-based software company has
| struggled since moving into the open-source software business
| and positioning itself as an alternative to Red Hat, with its
| shares falling more than 35%, to $7.18 from $11.38, over the
| past three years.
