Great that you can buy a Dell with nothing installed, but linux?

You need to remember. Some people like Linux and swear by it. I respect that. I find Windows to be the best.

If they want a machine pre-installed with linux, go ahead.
But i dont think that this is gonna by worth anything to the general public.

But they're not announcing computers with linux pre-installed, they're announcing computers certified to run linux on. I'd hoped for pre-installed linux with support options. As it is right now you're better off (financially) buying a box with windows and installing your distro of choice. It's cheaper anyways.
