For what it's worth, Dell have begun selling computers with Linux, which is
the operating system used by Google in the server room, as well as on the
desktop. I think Dell has become fed up with Microsoft to some extent. Vista
and its many problems does not look promising either, so Dell sidles with
Google/Open Source, gradually.
