recently I got a Dell computer with SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop pre-installed, but I was rather disappointed that there is actually a "Remove Operating System" option in the GRUB menu by default (which is obviously designed for easier replacement GNU/Linux with Windows, and is obviously a HUGE security hole), and their local vendor even offered installation of an unauthorized (!) copy of Windows XP. Actually, their local vendor call the computers with GNU/Linux as "cheaper computers without an genuine Operating System".

I could check out the local Dell reseller here. They should be able to tell me something.
Maybe they got something on stock that runs Linux, then I could ask them for a demonstration. I'm pretty good in playing interested, but totally incompetent. ;-)
