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.

None of the above. Pretty stupid question really, since you get a free unix clone out of the bargain you're paid very well for your time and trouble.

Assuming that your time isn't worth anything.

Assuming having a nice unix clone isn't worth anything to you and it sounds like it probably would be wasted. To most of us who have actually bought and paid for UNIX workstations and know how to use them it'd be worth a very great deal more.
