I should have added (a couple of people asked this!) that i don't have
a problem treating the response as "confidential".
The summary was going to be reasonably generic anyway. It was more aimed at
o getting a variety of feedback to pass constructive criticism back to Dell
to help improve the Linux support and commit more resources to the
engineering group that Matt/Amit/Joshua/Steve/Michael/etc belong to.
o hoping to avoid the same mistakes being made on revisions to existing
servers or new ones.
o get a base line idea of how the current generation of servers are
performing out in the real world.
o identify if there are any standout servers in the performance/reliability
sweetspots for admins/managers making upcoming purchase decisions.
