No software in Dell computers!

Software

power3d (928326) writes "Hi! Recently Dell started offering Desktops/Laptops with Linux (Ubuntu distro). Obviously, they charge for the installation, even if it's cheaper than Windows. Another problem is that, even for Ubuntu fans, there are many people that prefer to install their own Operating System and other Software. Currently Dell doesn't offer the option of "NO PRE-INSTALLED SOFTWARE". (neither other manufacturers) But Dell has a site where costumers can post their suggestions and Dell will apply those more voted. I've posted the suggestion of offering the option of offering computers without any software. I know that this won't mean anything without the votes of you guys. So I ask you please to go to http://www.ideastorm.com/article/show/67952/No_pre installed_software and make your vote. The registration is very simple. Don't need any confirmation mail or anything. It's made right there. Thank you :)"
