Dell and desktop Linux

In 1998, Ralph Nader asked Dell (and five other major OEMs) to offer alternate operating systems to Microsoft Windows, specifically including Linux, for which "there is clearly a growing interest"[19][20] Possibly coincidentally, Dell started offering Linux notebook systems that "cost no more than their Windows 98 counterparts" in 2000,[21] and soon expanded, with Dell becoming "the first major manufacturer to offer Linux across its full product line"[22] However, by early 2001 Dell had "disbanded its Linux business unit."[23]
Dell has supplied the free and open source software Ubuntu on select computers since 2007
.On February 26, 2007, Dell announced that it had commenced a program to sell and distribute a range of computers with pre-installed Linux distributions as an alternative to Microsoft Windows.^ Seems that Dell makes buying a computer without Windows pre-installed difficult.

Manufacturing

.In the 1980s, Dell became a pioneer in the "configure to order" approach to manufacturing — delivering individual PCs configured to customer specifications.^ Customer Care at Dell informed me that I could get an exchange but I would have to wait until some other customer orders a computer with the exact same specifications of the one I ordered and, when that customer returns the computer to the outlet, they would then ship it to me.

In contrast, most PC manufacturers in those times delivered large orders to intermediaries on a quarterly basis.[41]
.To minimize the delay between purchase and delivery, Dell has a general policy of manufacturing its products close to its customers.^ You see, if you read between the lines of what the ex-sales guy wrote, you simply see his list of the worries he has heard that keep customers from buying Dell products.
