Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell began polling customers about their software preferences on Tuesday as part of an effort by the struggling PC vendor to meet a popular request for desktops and notebooks that run on Linux instead of Windows. Dell posted the survey on a company blog, asking PC users to choose between Linux flavors such as Fedora and Ubuntu, and to pick more general choices such as notebooks versus desktops, high-end models versus value models and telephone-based support versus community-based support.

Dell won't change. Dell has dipped their fingers in this before and Microsoft spanked them for it.

If it DOES indeed happen, and you can sell ice cold lemonade to people in Hell, then it'll be a sure bet that Microsoft will end up choosing the distro for them - and I wonder which one it will be. Hmmmmmmmmmm...
