Nick Veitch, senior editor of Linux Format magazine, described it as "significant".

perhaps some people already knew ;-)

Give me time! Nick and I don't share a central nervous system, you know. I've posted a story about it, but at the moment nothing is known -- Dell already sells machines with Linux pre-installed, and the company hasn't specified which models (or which territories) will be part of this 'bigger' plan.

Let's hope they got the right man this time, unlike when they interviewed Guy Kewney :shock:

Edit: Here's Guy Kewney's own take on it with a link to the video.
