(DELL.O: Quote, Profile, Research) is considering offering the Linux operating system as an alternative to Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile, Research) Windows on its personal computers, a Dell spokesman said on Tuesday. The PC maker said it received more than 100,000 customer requests for Linux in a "suggestion box" posted on Dell's Web site less than three weeks ago. "We are listening to what customers are saying about Linux and taking it into consideration," said Dell spokesman David Lord. "We are going forward. Let's say, 'Certainly stay tuned.'" The only operating system that Dell currently offers on its PCs is Windows, with one exception, Lord said. It sells high-end Linux desktops designed specifically for use in oil and gas exploration, he said. http://www.reuters.com/article/technologyNews/idUS N0644160820070307"
