  I believe I had expressed some problems with Dell in the past, but
  it really isn't a quality control issue that I have seen.  It is more
  of a Linux support issue.  Lately I've been running into problems with
  getting particular parts of system working under Linux (raid cards,
  SATA drives, Ethernet cards) or I can get it working, but it
  performs badly ( PERC cards vs say a Mylex card ).

  I think it's more of a system design issue ( wrt Linux use ) rather
  than a quality issue.
