     Today, businesses are increasingly looking for "speed to solution" in
 their enterprise technology deployments. The Microsoft (Nasdaq:   MSFT)
 platform, including the Windows(R) 2000 operating system and the .NET
 Enterprise Servers, is designed with that requirement in mind. Dell, with its
 long history of understanding how to standardize and simplify enterprise
 computing, is clearly positioned to help customers with the launch of their
 infrastructure accelerators for key .NET Enterprise Servers. Dell's rigorously

 help businesses develop complete solutions and also deliver the reliability,
 performance and manageability required by today's enterprises. More than ever,
 market opportunities, competitive threats and cost-containment pressures

 Web-enable their enterprises.
