Talking Is Dell challenging Microsoft? Dell is going Linux

After receiving more the 50,000 users request Dell made the decision to Include Linux OS in their most popular models available for sale. In a few months you may have the option to choose more than one OS in the same computer. I think Dell is tired of MS Globalization . You never know maybe in 2010 we may have a Dell/Mac. I do not think that MS executives are happy with this.

People buy Apple hardware because of OS X, not to put Ubuntu on it.
