How much cheaper is it, I thought xp home OEM was only like £30 or something
Also for the pre-installed software, just format the drive and start again using the cdkey on the pc/laptop
I will be surprised if they do linux pre-installed as so many people don't know anything about it and will undoubtedly be phoning dell support every 5minutes
Sounds like they might charge customers for linux tho? can they legally do that? I'm pretty sure the time it would take is minutes as they would use disk images rather than running thru the installer.
lol at the title of the other news article tho
$60 to keep crapware off of a Windows PC?
Is this only a rumor atm tho?
