Every now and then I visit Dell.ca to check on the progress of Freedom. It’s getting better, but just a little. Just choose “For Work” and “Desktops and workstations”. You can get exactly 1 choice in “desktops and workstations” if you look for GNU/Linux but at $1K a box with no monitor or keyboard is a bit pricey. Same goes for “notebooks and tablets”, well over $1K. Of course, you have to pretend to be a business and buy three years of phone support… I guess they charge extra for freedom. “For Home” gives little choice except Android/Linux and that other OS. No GNU/Linux at all. I guess they just don’t want you to get anything done with FLOSS.
There’s no such problem at Walmart.com.br. It just doesn’t seem like Dell want to sell GNU/Linux because they’re not trying very hard. Perhaps they’re just trying to avoid being sued for anti-competitive actions.
