SuSE, openSUSE "Finally. For years, the holy grail of the Linux desktop has been to get a major computer vendor to commit to preloading a Linux desktop. It finally happened. On August 4th, we found out that Lenovo Group, the company that has taken over IBM's Personal Computing Division, had made a deal with Novell to preload SLED 10 on its ThinkPad T60p mobile workstation. For the first time, a major OEM has committed to preloading a Linux desktop."

I think that would be desktop as in something you'd find on Joe Public's desk... as opposed to a web server, a corporate storage server, a scientific supercomputing cluster, a workstation (such as the Dell systems linked to above), a mainframe, or an embedded system/cell phone/pda

Linux can already be found in all those other places, in relative abundance.
