Dell Start Giving Pre-Installed Linux

According to news i read in PCWorld, Dell is starting to give pre-installed Linux on their products (PC and Laptops) after they receive a lot of requests on their site which is designed to collect customer feedback (they receive about 500 comments about this Linux topic). Actually it's great news since customers can choose which operating system will be installed on their new system.

Axioo has also started this and now Dell follows. Who's Next?

    Actually Dell already ships the server and some of the Latitude desktop with Linux quite some time. 2-3 years if I am not mistaken. However, the move to common desktop, laptop and Inspiron lines are recent.

    Most Asian (e.g. Taiwan)laptop are also delivered with Linux. The well known ones are Acer and Twinhead. But many others whitebox-ers are also on Linux.
