Dell Pre-Installing Firefox in UK?

Looks like there is a lot of speculation that Dell is preinstalling Firefox in the UK. While that is fantastic for Firefox, it may not make a huge difference in actual acceptance numbers, since IE appears to be the default. It will likely make a small difference though as some people will click it out of curiosity. The bigger news here to me is that Dell is finally standing up (albeit in a very small way) to Microsoft. They simply would not have done this 3 years ago. One can only hope that this goes well. OpenOffice.org seems like the next logical step if it does, and from there a true Linux preinstall hopefully won't be too far off. Maybe that EU decision did have an impact, even if only a psychological one.
