Linux Dell has posted a page extolling the virtues of Linux (Ubuntu in particular), with a quick explanation of what Linux is and how it compares against Windows. Of course, the page links off to Dell's various computers that ship with Linux pre-installed.

Dell Australia doesn't offer Linux.

If I wanted to purchase a machine with pre-installed Linux in Australia, I would go to this company:

http://www.vgcomputing.com.au/

However, I personally don't actually need to do that, I have in the past purchased "upgrade kits" and blank hard drives, and downloaded a Linux LiveCD, and assembled my own machine that way. If I have a question, I Google it and read a Linux forum online.

Either way, you get far better suport than you would from Dell Australia.
