Not at the expense of customer service.  A lousy retailer that sells
machines with Linux on them is no better than a lousy retailer that sells
only Windows machines.  And since Dell flat out refused to even take my
calls or answer emails about the broken wireless in the last Dell machine I
bought (for which I paid for an extended warranty) I prefer to just
bad-mouth them for the rest of eternity.  It's way cheaper, more fun, and
probably more effective, than taking them to court.
