Dell issued a statement today saying that it was not even close to installing the OS into any of its product ranges and that certifying the hardware for being ready to work with Novell SUSE Linux, was not the same thing.More info at The Inq.
A spokesDell said that Dell was still listening to its Linux customers and already offers factory-installed Linux on some specific Dell Precision workstations for high-end corporate users, but is not currently installing the OS on its other laptop or desktop machines.
While not ruling out the option of expanding the pre-installation program at a future date, afterall Dell talks to AMD these days, there are no plans to do so yet, the SpokesDell said.
Dell drawing back from Linux promise?
