I think here in Australia we're probably even more
reticent than the US, at least Dell US sell systems
with Ubuntu pre-installed!

Down here we consider ourselves lucky if we can get
FreeDOS instead of Windoze and their Inspiron Mini 9
only ships with Windows XP.  Our Dell rep is well
aware of our feelings on this.. ;-)

Even the Linux based Eeepc's are like hens teeth.
