    Well they haven't annouced what Distro their going for yet.

    I don't whether the picture of Larry Ellison was a mistake by the BBC or an indication that we'll be getting Orcale's version of Red Hat Linux.

    Redhat, SuSE according to ZDNet

    Josh Claman, UK general manager of Dell, told ZDNet UK on Wednesday that his company would not be comfortable supporting Linux unless it could guarantee the quality of such systems. But he said he was now confident that point had been reached.

    But this does not mean that Dell will support every flavour of Linux. "We are looking at the options and we will be telling customers what we want to do soon," Claman said, adding that Suse and Red Hat were two of the distributions the company will be supporting.

    Dell already offers Red Hat and Suse Linux for corporates. But Claman made it clear to ZDNet UK that Dell has no intention of supporting naked PCs for anything other than the corporate market. "We will not sell any product unless we are confident that we can offer the complete Dell experience," said Claman. "We are happy to sell products to corporate customers who have their own agreements with the suppliers and their own contracts for software support and so on."
    So are schools classed as 'corporate' customers?, it makes no sense buying windows twice.
