Windows-free Dell PC aids Linux adoption

Antony Savvas

Dell has launched a desktop PC that does not have Windows pre-installed for users wanting to run Linux on their machines.

The Dimension E510n PC comes with a blank hard drive and a copy of the FreeDos operating system, which can be installed by users.

The computer costs £500 and comes with a Pentium 4 processor, 512Mbytes of memory and an 80Gbyte hard drive.

Many companies that have chosen to use Linux on the desktop have had to erase the Windows operating system on the PC before installing Linux. The new Dell machine is designed to save time and money for such users.

In addition to the Dimension E510n, Dell sells high-end PCs and servers equipped with Red Hat Linux.
