There at some many distros that most people would reinstall anyway.
I spend today more time identifying whether a new machine runs Linux well than installing Linux on it.
I'd rather Dell sell hardware that is certified to run Linux. Some sort of grid with each component marked from 0 to 3 stars.
3 fully supported
2 well supported
1 not very well supported
0 not supported.
Make a column for plain OSS support, one for binary support.
That's all I need.
