Dell is Selling Ubuntu PC's

Well. It seems like I’m not the only one pissed off at the suckiness of Windows Vista. Dell has actually decided to release computers with Ubuntu pre-installed (and set up, I hope) to make it easy to use, cheap, and totally customizable. Have you ever wanted a computer to be as cool as you are? Well, look no further, Dell with Ubuntu is going to rock your world.

Taken from Dell’s site:

In February when Dell launched IdeaStorm as forum for customers to contribute ideas for product offerings, we received overwhelming feedback that customers wanted Linux on desktops and notebooks.

As part of an overall effort to update our Linux program, today we are announcing a partnership with Canonical to offer Ubuntu on select consumer desktop and notebook products.

Update: These systems will be available in the coming weeks to customers in the United States.

This represents another step in the overall enhancement of our Linux program:

“We recently launched a Linux community board as another way to help our customers to get help they need to augment things we’ve been doing like supporting Linux mailing lists.

You can also find the IdeaStrom update in Ideas in Action section.

In this video, Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth talks about why he started Ubuntu, Linux adoption rate trends, how previous barriers to Linux adoption for mainstream users are improving, and more.”
