Debian on Dell
I just started a job at Duke. I've been told to put together a machine
quote for my office. I want to run Debian on it. I tried to persuade my
employer to use Monarch, but was told I have to use Dell.
I'm not sure of the best way to go about putting together a machine from
Dell which has good general Linux support as opposed to Red Hat support.
I've taken a look at Dell's Precision line of workstations, but it looks
less than ideal. For one things the descriptions are less than specific
about what hardware is included. Also, there is not as much choice as I
would like. I was hoping to somehow actually be able to do a significant
amount of customization without breaking the bank.
I'd greatly appreciate hearing about people's experiences of success with
Debian on Dell, and related advice, suggestions, and working
configurations. Thanks in advance.
