Dell's relatively massive support of Linux started with a user submission to the company's Idea Storm website, where visitors vote on what product features, services, etc., should be implemented. In 2006 - thanks in no small part to a concerted effort by Diggers - Linux desktops became the most wanted item on the site. Dell responded by getting a product together in what must have been record time. Laptops and netbooks followed. Nowadays, Android is a rapidly growing topic at Idea Storm.
