Question The difference between a standard install and an OEM install??


While trying various distros, I have noticed that there is often the choice of doing an OEM installation. What's the difference? I have never tried the OEM option.

Hi...

It's for companies who preinstall their systems with Linux. For Ubuntu, please see these threads...

I guess the long and short of it is that there isn't lot of difference - you are no doubt going to customize it in either event.

Thanks.
