Hi

I was just wondering what you think of that dell is starting to sell desktops with ubuntu.
I am from Sweden and here there is a discussion about that this is the jet another step away from the
original idea with linux. The most popular distributions have a company connected to them
Ubuntu, SUSE, Red hat and Mandriva and more and more software and drivers is not open source.

I think this is necessary and I think it is great that dell and ubuntu have started this collaboration I just hop that all you linux users in the USA starts to buy from dell so that it will reach Europe to because as it is right now USA is the only market where dell offers this.

The Ubuntu God is good. :p

Is there a way non-US users can buy Dell Ubuntu computers from a third party source who will ship to you, like on eBay?

I think this is great news. Yesterday, I loaded Feisty Fawn on my Inspiron 6000 and it's been running great, the wireless works great even connecting to networks using WPA2.

how do I change the title of my posted thread?If you can't change it yourself you may have to request a friendly Mod to change it for you.

try clicking on "Thread Tools" and see if there is an option to "edit Thread"

I know it's a honest mistake but I like it. ;)

If you edit your first post's title, it should change the thread name I think.

I think its a good thing and although Open Source software is great, I don't mind the inclusion of non-open source drivers etc.. because I think those companies have reasons for not making them open source. No point trying to force them but encourage the ones that do open source their drivers if they are making good products.
