Second the motion.  Dell's enterprise support is excellent.  Then of 
course to ruin that is Dell Financials...

We have a few dozen Dell Servers at work and they are all good.  We have 
Dell desktops at work and they are all right.  I have a work issued Dell 
D620 laptop and I hate it more every time I use it.  My boss picked them 
based solely on price and with no user feedback.  Everybody hates those 
laptops except for him.  The D820 would have been much better.

By the way, Promise still sucks, and I think this Friday will be my 
biweekly reboot of the arrays.
