Dell's day of reckoning

When I wanted a laptop for school a couple years ago, I came to the sad realization that I couldn’t buy one that didn’t have Microsoft Windows and 500 other pre-installed programs. I quickly reformatted to Linux.

Today, Dell and Microsoft are realizing there are many others out there like me. Since Dell started its Ideastorm website they finally must acknowledge that people hate not having a choice. The number one idea is “Pre-installed Linux.” Wow! could this start a shift away from Windows? (I doubt it but its definitely giving Linux boost)

A few other honorable mentions on idea storm:

  • OpenOffice pre-installations
  • No pre-installed programs
  • No Overseas tech support

I encourage everyone to go vote, so that I can finally get a laptop with Linux.

Now if only Cell Phone and Cable companies would create ideas websites….
