Dell has said it is working to certify Linux operating systems on its corporate desktop and notebook PCs.

The announcement was sparked by a flood of requests on the hardware giant’s IdeaStorm customer feedback web site last month asking for greater compatibility with open source software such as Novell’s SuSe Linux operating system, the OpenOffice applications suite and Firefox web browser.

Following the response, Dell said it was working with Novell and other open source distributors to certify their software on its hardware.

“We are listening, and as a result, we are working with Novell to certify our corporate client products for Linux, including our OptiPlex desktops, Latitude notebooks and Precision workstations,” the company said on its web site. “In addition to working with Novell, we are also working with other distributors and evaluating the possibility of additional certifications across our product line.”
