being a worthwhile alternative to Windows before the next release of
Windows, and looking at the top end of commercial Linux distributions,
the game is still open. At the opposite end of the scale the only
sys . admin. skills that I've needed with Ubuntu Breezy have been with
acpi - I would guess that Linux will not ever support a Dell Latitude
