This is incredibly good news. Although (based on my understanding of Mandriva's press release) this is targeted for Europeans, it represents a paradigm shift towards giving consumers a choice in which operating system they can purchase with a computer. I still dream of a day when anybody can walk into a big box retail store and see a selection of computers with more than just one OS available (and no, Windows XP Home, Pro, and Media Center DON'T count as three choices!).
Kudos to Mandriva and Dell.
