Dell select Linux to keep enterprise IT costs down
by David M Williams
Wednesday, 04 February 2009

This week Novell announced they've signed a deal that will see Dell 
using SUSE Linux Enterprise on their new OptiPlex FX160 thin clients. 
This move means corporate IT departments will be able to simplify IT at 
a lower cost than ever before. ....

IDC Worldwide produced a thin client forecast and analysis for 2008-2012 
in June last year. It’s $10,000 but for that you get 27 pages of 
reading. That’s $370.37 per page. You might need to take my word for 
this, but IDC predict Linux will reach 30.5% market share of thin client 
operating system deployments by 2011. <more>
