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.

So apart from games what does Windows XP offer that Linux desktop don't?

But as for more advanced niche applications it has a long way to go.
