Submission + - Dell users demand Linux

narramissic writes: "Thousands of Dell users voted favorably in response to an idea posted Friday on a company-hosted blog called Dell Idea Storm that calls for the option to purchase PCs with the Linux OS. Other popular threads include requests for consumer PCs that are not pre-loaded with unsolicited applications, requests for OpenOffice applications instead of Microsoft's Office suite, Firefox instead of Internet Explorer, and pleas for Dell to stop routing service calls to operators in overseas countries such as India. For its part, the company has said it will 'post a statement on the blog this week explaining how they will react.'"
