I was too busy with the projects I was doing. Anyway I’m back now and free to blog again.

Dell has a blog post to their report about upcoming Linux offerings on desktop and laptop systems:

A few trends emerged from the comments and I want to address them directly in this and future posts. This post focuses on our strategy for device drivers. All of the practices described here are available today — you can enact them yourselves too.

I hope dell will start to offer Linux desktop system, as I need to upgrade my Intel 1.7Ghz desktop system with 24” LCD display.

Also Dell need to make sure that Linux based hardware available across the globe, not just in US. There are some desktop/laptop models not available in India. These days I don’t have much time to build whitebox PC. Also I don’t like HP desktop systems at all.
