    Phoronix: Dell Laptop Platform Profile Patches Being Worked On For Linux

      How do you know Dell is not employing them as contractors?

        I'm trying this out RN against 6.8.9; they don't seem to break anything, at least, but I need to get more into it.

            Dell silently cancelled their Linux based laptop line up. So, don't expect any Linux work coming from Dell themselves.

              I think they still have a few uber-expensive professional laptops at a minimum with Ubuntu. I'd still recommend looking for a different company for Linux computing laptops, such as Framework or System76. I like Dell but they need to support more of their machines IMO.

                I can confirm I was not hired by anyone to work on this.
