    It'd be an interesting research topic, I was having a whinge to my colleagues in Europe about the security software we're encountering on a more rapid basis and that is was hampering our work (which don't get me wrong is a good thing) and they just didn't have the issue.

    *coughs*
    Uhh.... Win7 bad, Win10 good, there we go, back on topic :p

    I really, really want OpenXT to hit its stride.

    Check it out. Everyone should be wanting it to work nicely.
    You can "alt tab" (Ctrl+#) between hypervisor and client OS'.

    It's the closest I've seen to a noob grade desktop hypervisor.

    And it could be a decent "condom" for windows 7.

    I get why they're doing it, but I wish they'd focus less on security and more on getting things like 3d and sound working well.

    That's the best screenshot I can find of the UI atm. It really needs some marketing!

    Dell does i think a warranty transfer, so you can shift your warranty to another country.

    This is correct. We've purchased many systems locally in AU and transferred them globally and gotten warranty on those systems.

    Pretty sure the XPS warranty process is better than the Inspiron process because its a better machine.

    XPS service used to be crazy good, haven't had to do any for years though.

    I will.

    For the life of me I simply cannot understand why the Developer Edition devices are only available in the US.

    I'd throw my guess in the 'big enough market they sell enough to be worth offering that option' ring :)

    There's more people in China than the US and the Chinese are heavy Linux users, yet no developer edition? I honestly don't think that's the reason.
