recommend mint.

and tell them

Let a person Choose the OS they want: Either linux, windows or both pre-installed.

Do not offer a linux section (aka geek section).

Let people choose in which PCs they want linux installed. Offer it as an ADD ON to all existing products as possible. It's a free product you can take advantage on.

similar to what people are asking of DELL to using a special hidden geek section and make linux universal on any product i choose.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I just told them to beat Dell by treating Linux like a first class citizen and not hidden away :-)

I found it somewhat odd that Alienware wanted to know if we would pay MORE for Linux on their systems. One would think it would actually be much cheaper to use Linux. Is Alienware still owned by Dell? Anyway, I put in my vote. Maybe there will be something to come if there is enough interest.

well i don't know if i would pay more or not. It all depends on what and how they offer it.

i would definitely get an alienware laptop and support alienware for years if they offer linux in the OS options, depending i may pick it with windows too along linux (dual-boot system), but they have to let me choose and make it highly visible.

an alienware linux media center pc also sounds good.
