Does this have to be big vendors or can it include smaller system 
builders dotted around?

If so, I build PCs (and servers) with Ubuntu on them via my own business 
although I don't have a general set specification.  If someone requests 
it I'll install it, I will also recommend Linux solutions based on what 
the customer wants (if they want a games machine I'd suggest Windows, if 
they want a general every day PC to browse the internet, play media and 
download videos I'd suggest Ubuntu over Windows, unless they really want 
to pay an extra £60 for Vista Home).
