ComputerWorld - Firefox users are drawing on Dell Inc.'s user-driven IdeaStorm site to push the computer maker to preinstall the open-source browser. With Dell's announcement yesterday that it will offer Ubuntu Linux on some systems, the petition to put Firefox on new PCs has climbed to second place on IdeaStorm, behind a call to offer OpenOffice.org, a free application suite. On IdeaStorm, the Firefox preinstall petition has collected more than 70,000 votes since its introduction Feb. 19, a day after the opinion-collecting site went live. Only the pleas for OpenOffice, with more than 96,000, and preinstalled Linux, with 132,000, have collected more votes.
