Fedora is in the Desktop Linux category. This category is for vendors who sell Linux Desktops.

Zareason lets you pick your distro. I think that sets them apart.

http://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/...xctop5720aious (and other similar options) would seem to make them a reasonable nominee. Thoughts?

Cool, I didn't know about that one.

Personally I class AiO machines as desktops. You are just putting the computer in a box inside the monitor. Some people may class them as another class, or even laptop/tablet as they often use laptop parts.

I'd vote for https://minifree.org/ if it were on the list. Machines as free of spyware as currently possible.
