Default Dell's Open Source Desktop Systems

A major hurdle preventing the growth of Linux with non-professional users has been installation the operating system and dealing with the resultant compatibility issues. An ideal solution to this would be a major manufacturer which is willing to sell computers with Linux preinstalled. This would not only make it easy for users to buy a computer and have Linux running after simply plugging it in, but it would theoretically allow the manufacturer to lower the cost of a computer because software licensing costs could be minimized. Dell is not the first company to take the Linux plunge, but given their size and the outspoken statements from Michael Dell, their "n" line is a big deal. This is a big step for the Linux community and though it is not going to revolutionize everything it is a step towards increased Linux acceptance and an overall easier move from Windows.
