the state of pre-installed Linux on Dell computers.
"Dell is only talking about certifying its corporate client products. Worse, it's only talking about doing that with Novell hardly open source's favourite company at the moment. The justification for not going further is rather unconvincing: We don't want to pick one distribution and alienate users with a preference for another. So, rather than upset supporters of some distros, Dell has decided to be scrupulously fair and to upset supporters of all distros.
It's clear from this statement that Dell is not going to offer systems with pre-installed GNU/Linux any time soon.
