Dell to offer machines with preinstalled Linux

YyyeeeSsssss !!

If you remember, I had vowed never to pay a single dime to MS for Windows Vista as far as my personal use is concerned. Well my task has been made that much easier!

Very soon Dell is going to start offering machines with Linux pre-installed.

This essentially means that Dell will now start shipping hardware which is compatible with one or more of the popular distributions. While this does not end the need for configuring your machines (for those who are so inclined) yet it is significant development because it is now almost guaranteed that such efforts will not be futile because of hardware vendors not playing ball.

Here is the link to the news – Link (This may be slashdotted at the moment)
