Dell is still on its (fake?) quest for a Linux Pre-installed Computer.
Now the community is fighting about Flavors.
Go for a well known distro like SUSE Ubuntu of Linspire, or whatever, as long as its a BIG distro which appeals to the general public and NOT the communities ego’s.
“Worse, we are not “Linux” users, we are users who want version 6.06.1 of Ubuntu, or 10.2 of SuSE, or Fedora 6. We want a specific distro, and in many cases also a specific VERSION of that distro.”
Exactly so and I wholeheartedly agree.
The hardware compatibility is what the discussion should be about:
An experienced user of Linux will replace the pre-installed Flavor to his/her costum needs anyway.
