Michael Dell running automatix2 on his laptop... interesting! I hope his computer doesn't have any patent infringements.
As much as I dislike Dell (mainly for their proprietary stuff), I think this is a big step forward for Linux. A little worried about those licensing agreements though.
I remember Dell saying a few years ago that he would never use AMD processors, because he thought they were unstable. I figured he had something going with Intel. Now most of his dimension series use AMD. I guess he is willing to change with the times.
