Ok I went to the dell website posing as a Complete noob and talk to a representative over the online sales chat. I've attached the entire conversation.

He copied this from wikipedia

Ubuntu 4.0 focuses on usability including the widespread use of the sudo tool for administrative tasks. The Ubiquity installer allows installing Ubuntu to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation.


Now think if you knew nothing of linux would that scare you too? Sudo, Ubiquity, Live CD

Not really sure what happened here.

That does not appear on Wikipedia (as far as I can tell). A Google search brings up only this thread.


for more information you can check this out, direct link:*http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_8.04
That seems odd too, there is no page at that link (you are redirected to the generic Ubuntu page).

That is the exact chat log (minus my personal info)
This is what he linked to when I asked about the Ubuntu Mini OS

If you look at the Fetures section the part about sudo is right there
