I've found that the folks on the list are or try to be helpful, 
especially the Dell folks.  But Dell itself can't seem to figure out if 
it's coming or going with regard to Linux (except on servers), and that 
causes a lot of problems with the hardware, the community, and getting 
useful answers.  Also, the IT for the Linux side is really FUBAR, to the 
point that parts of one wiki are old, and wrong, but no one can seem to 
get it fixed or provide write access to anything (so why have a *wiki*). 
  The list itself is also screwy; it decided moths ago that I couldn't 
post to it, ad no one can get that fixed or even find out why.  Sigh.
