Dell extends it’s linux support

After two surveys about linux usage in private homes and offices dell has decided to take their gnu/linux support to a new level. In a blog entry of dell they promise to make efforts to get free drivers for all hardware parts of their systems.

They acknowledge the importance of this drivers in the main kernel and want to support the community.

If they held their promises I will look forward to recommend Dell computers.. especially if they sell gnu/linux certified or gnu/linux pre-installed pc’s.

    I think that is a good decision of Dell. Who wants to buy a MS license after the other? Even if you don’t need it. The fact that, at this time, you have to take Vista with a new Dell computer is a reason for not buying a Dell. I hope that the computer with Linux is cheaper than the one with a MS OS.
