Dell user demands pre installed Linux

Dell customer demanding free Linux versions for free pre-installation on all Dell PCs to cut down cost and to kick out buggy Windows software 😀

From the Slashdot story:
Within only a few days of Dell opening a new customer feedback website, they discovered that the feature most requested (by an almost 2-to-1 margin!) is an option on all new Dell PCs: pre-installed Linux. (And the number 3 request is pre-installed Open Office.) I believe they’ll have a harder time now with the tired old mantra ‘There’s no customer demand for Linux.
