Customer demand

 

    Dell will offer Linux pre-installed on select desktop and notebook systems, beyond its current Linux-based servers and Precision workstations.
The move follows feedback on its IdeaStorm site and a survey two weeks ago that got more than 100,000  responses.


More than 70 percent f survey respondents said they would use a Dell system with a Linux operating system for both home and office use.
Survey respondents indicated they wanted a selection of notebook and desktop offerings.

Majority of survey respondents said that existing community-based support forums would meet their technical support needs for a tested and validated Linux operating system on a Dell system.

Survey respondents indicated that improved hardware support for Linux is as important as the distribution offered.
Dell has been short on providing a time frame for the release of products but said it will keep customers up-to-date on which systems we will offer, our testing and certification efforts, and the Linux distribution(s) that will be available.
