Dell and Ubuntu GNU/Linux

Posted by Scott on May 4th, 2007

I am very pleased to hear that Dell is going to be offering select desktop and laptop systems with Ubutnu Linux pre-installed. I just purchased a Dell Latitude D620 (without Linux preinstalled – it was right before the announcement), and I have to say I’ve never had a smoother laptop Linux installation before than with this laptop and Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty Fawn.”

This move on Dell’s part will do a lot to differentiate them from other companies, and it’s definitely going to impact my recommendations when it comes to suggesting computers for friends and family. Thank you, Dell, for taking this leadership role and selecting one of the finest desktop Linux distributions available today, Ubuntu.
