Your computers suck, too

From Reuters:

"Software maker Microsoft Corp. on Friday said it and computer maker Dell Inc. will supply software and services to the U.S. Air Force, in a deal valued at more than $500 million over 6 years.

Under the agreement, Microsoft will provide server software, maintenance and upgrade support, while Dell will supply more than 525,000 licenses for Microsoft desktop Windows and Office software.

The software pact, through Dell, consolidates 38 software license agreements previously established by the Air Force, the companies said, standardizing configurations of software used across global Air Force operations."

No surprises here. Michael Dell has been in the Boy King's pocket for quite some time now. Let's just hope he doesn't have any kids; buying a spot in the Texas Air National Guard is likely to be pretty expensive these days.
