That's nothing. The UK Dell Ubuntu site has a link to a page full of laptops with only XP or Vista on. Once you work out that you can find them by going to the laptop or desktop pages and filtering by operating system, you get no desktops and a choice of one, yes one, netbook.

I really want to support Ubuntu by buying it pre-installed but I've all but given up on finding a laptop I want. At least there is a ton of hardware compatibility information available.

There's one desktop, two laptops (15" and 13") plus three netbooks (10", 10v and 12").

I haven't encountered a Dell machine that cannot run Linux. So you can order any machine you want from Dell without an OS and install it yourself.

Dell just added a 15" laptop to the line up. I think it is great that ubuntu is an option to begin with. It's hard for companies to compete in this day and age. The mere fact that Dell even sells ubuntu machines, is awesome.

Don't rush it. Linux is on a steady course. I'm happy, my friends are happy, and a few other people I know are real happy with ubuntu. To me, that's all that matters.
