Great news. Good to see that this is being made public.

Dell (Israel?) does seem to have a policy to provide its lower end 
laptops with FreeDOS as an OS. At least this is the impression I get from 
a quick glance at zap.co.il:

* Lower-end Dell models tend to be offered with "NO OS" or "FreeDOS" as 
  the base option, and with various MS-Windows versions added for extra 

* On higher end Dell models this is no longer the case. XP professions or 
  Vista professional seem to be the base standard there.

* Computers of most other vendors don't seem to have a similar "NO OS" 

And while I'm at it:
