Alienware Area 51 ALX/Aurora ALX running Linux
I've seen the newer Alienware rigs that have those colour changing lights and user/temp controlled fans and the opening spine of fins to exhaust the hot air. I like how these look and run, but I've not been able to find out if these machines can run on linux (Ubuntu, Zorin, Debian, etc) without losing the ability to use these features as one would have access to in Windows.
I'm mostly curious as well since these are Dell machines and since Dell does sell some of their computers preloaded with ubuntu, that if they might have the drivers and controlls for these in linux form as well. Yes the lights and fins are gimmicky but I kind of like'em.
