I've always thought that Dell does not like to be a leader in technology, that they were a strong follower... but I didn't realize they were going to be dead last [with Opteron].
At the event marking Opteron's one year launch anniversary, Ruiz was bold enough to give a timeline for Dell adoption:
"Dell will do what a great company always does," Ruiz said. "It listens to its customers. I believe Dell will be here when we have our two-year anniversary of Opteron."
It is known that Dell continues to evaluate AMD hardware, but sources say there is no timeline for an Opteron product.
