This might be the worst thing to ever happen to Linux.

I’m willing to bet that the ‘Microsoft Tax’ that everyone bitches about is probably less than $50 on a Dell. So Dell can’t mark these new boxes up enough to pay for driver development, customer service issues, etc, but yet all the people who suggested this (who the hell takes advice from people on the internet?) are just in it because they’ll save money, or for the herd, so no extra revenue there.

This probably fails and becomes something they study at B-schools.

Disclaimer: This, combined with their continuing accounting problems caused me to some Dell the day after I wrote this. I wouldn’t want the vast hordes of people who follow this page not to realize I had a horse in this race.
