Another Linux Milestone
by James Turner
You notice I said "until today." As of 4PM CDT today, Dell will be offering 3 systems (2 desktops and a notebook) with Ubuntu preinstalled and supported. This is a red-letter day for Linux, one of the major reasons that we don't see the Penguin on consumer PCs more is that Windows is already pre-installed when the box arrives. Now, at least, consumers will have a choice. Bravo to Dell for listening to the hhundreds of thousands of people who voted for Linux, and taking quick action
That's good news; but we need to see how good their after-sales support will be...
