Not even one Linux-specialised support technician, in the whole of the UK &
Ireland? Damn, if that's the case, then I'm glad I always try this excellent
list first, rather than call tech support. :-)

I'm highly sceptical though that the Dell official line in the UK is that
Linux on PowerEdge servers is "not supported" - after all, why would Dell
openly sell in this country something they don't want to support?

Maybe he was just an ill-informed tech reciting the support policy for Linux
on desktop machines. I know that Dell dropped Linux on the desktop ages ago.

Regards,

Basil Hussain
