The Register has been trying to get hold of the new Dell E510n 'Open Source PC' which ships with a copy of FreeDOS instead of Windows (it's not installed, mind you; you have to do that yourself.) They've had a struggle finding it, let alone actually buying it, and Reg readers are in the same boat too.
So, say you've managed to find the E510n. And say Dell's lack of support for the box doesn't bother you. And say that paying the same for it as a box with Windows - that you could remove and give to your mom - doesn't faze you either. Then you can go ahead and buy one of these suckers, right? Well, sure, unless you're one of the many people who can't.
