Can you imagine training your support staff on 10 distros? The only way this might work is if Dell warrantied the hardware and the software support you purchase comes from the distribution which may or may not have a support company behind it. Even still the countdown has not begun because you're looking at a crap load of work and investment to either organize the support or train your support staff.
