Dell caught the attention of many with it's recent announcement for plans to introduces Linux on it's prebuilt systems and notebooks.

However, Dell has now clarified that it would not preload Linux on Dell systems, at least for now.

Although Dell is dancing around the idea of reintroducing Linux desktops and notebooks, the computer maker said it won't make a move until one of the competing flavors of Linux emerges as a business favorite. Dell now maintains that it doesn't want to pick one Linux distribution and alienate users with a preference for another. 

Pressure from Microsoft?
