When asked whether the SCO Group's move to secure license fees for the use of Unix in Linux was affecting Dell's Linux plans, Michael Dell replied, "Not at all."

And his answer to the question "Are you paying licence fees"? Michael simply replied "Nope."

Dell was less specific on whether or not his company was going to come up with it's own branded Wi-Fi products. When asked, all he would say is "That's a good bet. But there are no specific products to be announced today."
