On the Direct2Dell company blog, Matt Domsch, Linux Software Architect for Dell, announced that Dell has added its Latitude line of notebooks PCs to its n-Series lineup of products. n-Series are Dell products that ship with no operating system pre-installed.
According to Domsch, the decision to sell Latitude notebooks PCs without any operating system pre-installed is a direct result of Dell IdeaStorm. IdeaStorm, which was launched by Dell little more than a week ago, is an interactive website which allows users to post ideas they would like to see Dell work on.
Oh Great , this is what makes DEll , Dell , they listen to you and gives what you want
If you're looking for a new Linux-equipped Dell laptop or desktop from the PC vendor, you may be waiting a while.
Despite obvious support for the idea last week from thousands of visitors on its new customer suggestion Web site IdeaStorm, the company said it's not yet building machines with Linux pre-loaded for the consumer and business markets.
The company said today that the note was just about certifying the hardware for being ready to work with Novell SUSE Linux, not an announcement that the computers would be loaded and sold with the operating system in the near future.
