,----[ Quote ]
| Dell chalks up its success with Linux to the direct sales model, where it can
| coach customers on the phone about what system may suit them best.
| But besides patting itself on the back for excellent customer service, Dell

| with Linux netbooks. Dell makes more profit on the Linux systems.

| Dell attributes part of the Linux growth to competitive pricing on the Ubuntu
| SKUs. “When you look at the sweet spot for this category it is price
| sensitivity, and Linux enabled us to offer a lower price entry point,” added
| Dell senior product manager John New.
