Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris While Dell recommends the use of Windows XP Professional, in France Dell and Mandriva have announced the availability of a Dell laptop preloaded with Mandriva Linux. This is the first time any Dell laptop with pre-installed Linux has been sold or supported by Dell. Previously, only Dell N-Series Precision Workstations with Red Hat Linux were available from Dell.

Also...*ding!*...Mandriva is French. ;)
So they're going to find a local distro for every new country they offer this type of machine? I'm sure the facts that they started in France and chose Mandriva are not a coincidence, but that can't have been their primary reason for choosing a distro.
