Dell Pushes Soft(ware) Sell Approach

Dell's Download Store this week has started selling Microsoft Office applications for download at discounts slightly lower than Redmond's retail.

The company already sells goods from companies like CA and Intuit. But with only about 10,000 visitors to its download site weekly, it'll take a while before Dell can mount a challenge against Amazon, Ingram Micro or other big online distributors.
