Dell has announced that more of their systems will be available with Linux pre-installed: "It's exciting to see the IdeaStorm community's interest in open source solutions like Linux and OpenOffice. We are listening, and as a result, we are working with Novell to certify our corporate client products for Linux, including our OptiPlex desktops, Latitude notebooks and Dell Precision workstations. This is another step towards ensuring that our customers have a good experience with Linux on our systems." In addition: " Dell recognizes our customers' desire to have unlimited control over the software on their PC. In fact, today XPS customers can opt-out of almost all preinstalled software. We will be expanding this effort in the coming months."
