Dell drops Linux from desktops and laptops

>Dell cited lack of demand and the slow PC market as reasons for removing Linux as a choice for desktop and laptop users.

http://www.geek.com/news/dell-drops-linux-from-desktops-and-laptops-543744/

Holy shit freetards. Those Laptops were cheaper than the Windows counterparts, but people still rather payed more for Windows. People literally say: Linux, not even for free. This is the final nail in the coffin.

I have an Inspiron I bought from when they did that. I bought it thinking it would be the same quality as their business market Latitiude machines, but it turned out to be cheap plasticky Wal-Mart shit with a horrible LCD display. It was like one of three models they had available at the time.

Shit hardware is shit hardware regardless of the OS and it's not any wonder they didn't sell. Trying to market them as budget machines to non-technical users who don't care about specs shows they had no idea what they were doing.

>>52979585

Freetards are always claiming that Loonix has no marketshare because it doesn't come pre-installed on PC's when that's a complete lie.

Nobody buys Loonigz computers because the OS is shit.

See that video on how Linux made that girl drop out of college.

Everyone who is a bit tech literate knows how to use Linux and probably has it on a spare laptop/server/dual boot/whatever.
Yes, we know it isn't ready for desktop, yes we know it doesn't support a lot of professional software.
Irrational hate such as this thread is only done by gayming faggots that are the cancer of this board.

You have no arguments because in reality only a few faggot hipsters and autists run Linux.

But let me guess, the 91% of the human population who don't use Linux are all gaymurs who just don't get this beautiful OS. AMIRITE?

Why you haven't left already? You're here for a few days and you think you know everything you dumb kid?
I already told you, people who know a little bit about technology probably run Linux somewhere, not necessarily their main machine. They understand what Linux is about. Edgy kids like you who have irrational hate towards Linux are cancer.
Anyway, linking again other places that should suit retards like you

The thing is that :
1- people that knows and use linux are often intelligent people (or at least, people that are a minimum tech literate)
2- Dell sells expensive shit

I knew Dell sold linux laptops but then again I'll never recommend this brand to friends.
I'm pretty sure a lot of people think the same. It's cheaper to buy a computer from another brand, that comes with windows and install linux on it.

HAHAHAHAHHA! enjoy your loser autism OS with NO GAMES!

You can't be serious.

Why don't they have the option of "no pre-installed OS"?

Not that it really matters.
Pre-installed Windows is about $10-$20 depending on version.
It's nowhere as expensive as buying Windows separately.

>poorest nations turn to free alternatives

Stop the presses!

On the other hand, has it dawned on you yet that it is Linux users rejecting Dell, not Dell rejecting linux

Hahahaha you must be as thick as a bag of dog dicks

>Pre-installed Windows is about $10-$20 depending on version.
really ?
In my country there's a shop selling MSI laptops without OS. For the equivalent specs you need to spend some 100 € more.

At one time they had a freedos option. But I havent purchased anything from them in 6 years.
>>
>>52980940
because some clown would order without an OS because it's cheaper, get his laptop, then go HURR DURR IT DONT WORK and return it to buy another brand. Lost money

This. The problem with these "Linux" laptops is, they're always underpowered pieces of shit because of the whole "Linux can run on anything."meme. And..on top of that, the few decent ones that do exist, are priced through the roof.
