Dell IdeaStorm Update

So it seems Dell have actually listened to some of the ideas posted on their IdeaStorm site:

"Pre-Installed Linux Options
It’s exciting to see the IdeaStorm community’s interest in open source solutions like Linux and OpenOffice. Your feedback has been all about flexibility and we have seen a consistent request to provide platforms that allow people to install their operating system of choice. We are listening, and as a result, we are working with Novell to certify our corporate client products for Linux, including our OptiPlex desktops, Latitude notebooks and Dell Precision workstations. This is another step towards ensuring that our customers have a good experience with Linux on our systems."

As far as I can see it's only for business customers in the U.S which is a shame really since I'M OVER HERE IN THE FUCKING UK!
