Dell thinks about putting Linux on its machines. It'll be interesting to see which distro gets picked, and what the typical bundle of software will be. The move is significant for all the obvious reasons, not the least of which will be the entry of another support entity into the Linux world. Dell could also offer a choice of distros but that might be a stretch. At the very least, the chance to get a run-out-of-box Linux box would quite an enticement for not just the old faithful but also for a whole new demographic. It'd also be interesting to see how this would play into Dell's academic market.
