Do you frequently win the lottery?  :)

I have tried every browser, including IE under Wine with no success. 
Also Firefox and Opera under Win give me grief.  IE works as a Firefox 
tab (when the Dell site cooperates).

I asked my rep if the web guys get the GOOD pharmaceuticals but she 
declined to comment.

I tend to order their popular FreeDOS option for my machines at work.
No real issues w/ the Ubuntus.

I noticed that the Minis have linux options right up front, which is 
certainly more than other vendors.  The new Latitude, which seems to be 
a repackaged Mini 10, also has an Ubuntu option.
