Well, Dell has already indicated (today's news somewhere) that they're
not likely to take much action on this any time soon. Michael Dell runs
the company again, and that means his anti-Linux, anti-AMD bias is
firmly at the helm. Dell is a lost cause for Free Software users, and I
really think a lot of time is wasted thinking about them that would be
better applied elsewhere. Rather than continually trying to twist
Dell's arm into doing itself a favor, we should let Dell continue to rot
and reap what they've sowed.
I was at the One Laptop Per Child presentation last night, and after
hearing how its come into being, it's obvious to me that the correct
approach is to let Dell continue sucking up to monopolists (it's what
they aspire to be themselves), and find some hardware maker to be
friends with that's really interested and not just jerking us around.
