    The word vendor means, 'the seller'

    So Im guessing a linux vendor would be a company, that sells linux, either on its own, (Red Hat) or installed on a machine (Dell)

    Juts a guess though, dont write a completely wrong essay because of me

    i think u should ask if u can change the word vendor to distrobutions
    which would make more sense as they are the ones that actually put them together and decide what to make part of it.

    how many paragraphs will this essay be ?

    And Vendors Of Linux? they are companies, that only sell Linux installed on a machine, right? So RedHat is not a vendor of Linux... it's true?

    Wal-mart is a vendor than? Apparently they sell cheap computers with Mandrake-Linux preinstalled. Also, Monarch Computers Systems, i.e. www.monarchcomputer.com

    That's my two cents.

    no one actually sells linux, they sell distros. a distro is the kernel/linux (one and the same(read "just for fun"(a biography of linux/linus torvalds))) and the rest is just packaging. sure wal-mart sells PCs with lindows preinstalled and DELL will preinstall usu. redhat but they're actually selling the pcs.

    as for the setup of the essay
    1st paragraph introduction
    -mention open source and the book just for fun by david diamond
    -mention that linus torvalds didn't create linux for any reason other than fun and testing the limits of his computer

    2nd paragraph linux as a server

    3rd paragraph linux as desktop

    4th paragraph concuslion

    check out this site
    http://www.thinkgeek.com/books/nonfiction/38b2/
    it sumarizes the book

    make your thesis something about linux being a good desktop and server

    -all uses of computers fit into catagory of client / server / piece of junk(rare - paperwieght, murder weapon, etc.)

    My essay just is apart of a discussion about Linux, and my topic is about vendors of linux! There are many Topics: what's linux, history, Application area, furture of li... So i don't want to write more than my topic is

    Now, I think Vendors of linux are the company that make Linux Populate around the word, contain comp package Linux (RedHat,Suse..) and comp
    sell machine (DELL)
    Do u know which vendors to talk about?
