The article says that Dell will be offering both Solaris and OpenSolaris. Now the Big Four (IBM, HP, Sun and Dell) all offer at least Windows, Solaris, RHEL, and SLES on their x86 servers. This move doesn't seem nearly as strange when you consider that Dell, the only member of the Big Four with no in-house UNIX flagship, was previously the odd man out in terms of Solaris support.
