Dell's March To Linux PCs Won't Be A Walk In The Park

In preinstalling Linux on consumer PCs, Dell's biggest challenge will be finding a full set of open source drivers for the hardware that will run with the new machines, says Dell's software architect on the project.

The computer maker will offer the open source operating system in desktops and notebooks following strong customer demand for the machines on the company's online sounding board, IdeaStorm.

Dell has a lot of details to finalize, including when it will start offering Linux consumer PCs, which versions of Linux it will ship, and how much support it will offer.
