After much deliberation, research and argument in #korg (along with screaming matches between HPA and I over dinner) we are upgrading the kernel.org machines from Fedora Core 5 to FreeBSD 7.0.
I thought, dammit, it's almost like the Hell just froze over or what. Obviously, it's not an April Fool's joke — the downtime is scheduled on April 2nd.

According to Desktop Linux, Dell will ship three models, an e-series "Essential" Dimension desktop, an XPS desktop, and an e-series Inspiron laptop. The desktop models range from $400 (headless) to $900 and the laptop from $900 to $1150.
I think the choice was obvious — after all, that's the distro Michael Dell is using on his laptop.
