I think Dell is on the right track here. For Linux to be supported in the mainstream is MUST have full hardware support, this shouldn't even be a consideration for end users. To accomplish this the big manufacturers must be developing the drivers, not waiting for some community to form, and hoping they get it working then steal the code. Just as developing drivers for Windows they can't sell machines that only partially work and hope they can make money on it. I would love to see Dell have a Linux strategy that plans further out than one year.
