This is a huge move for open source software. Dell will begin offering Linux pre-installed on its computers. This is for home use even!


Dell has heard you and we will expand our Linux support beyond our existing servers and Precision workstation line. Our first step in this effort is offering Linux pre-installed on select desktop and notebook systems. We will provide an update in the coming weeks that includes detailed information on which systems we will offer, our testing and certification efforts, and the Linux distribution(s) that will be available. The countdown begins today.

You know what this means. Throwing out the garbage Broadcom chipset for wireless that has no open source support at all.
