Dell to offer Ubuntu Pre-Installed 0 comments

From johnlittle.org, It would appear that are about to offer supported, pre-installed on their machines. This is a huge step forward for Linux, I am a little cautious until I see the machines showing up on dell.com, but it does make sense that they are choosing as Michael Dell is already reported to be (at the time of writing it shows him as running Ubuntu Feisty on a Dell Precision M90). Hopefully with a manufacturer as big as Dell on board more and more hardware manufacturers will be forced to provide good (and with luck open) drivers for the platform.

Update

Press release and video interview with Mark Shuttleworth on Dells website.
