Ubuntu right now has zero, zip, nada exposure at the Dell website

so which ideas would give it enough exposure to consumers and why?


these ideas seems interesting:

I am going through the website, and "digging" everything that relates to linux

it's tad sad they keep linux hidden away

they want it to be "ready" for the masses and "supported" by commercial software companie.

but they do absolute nothing to contribute, not even a small visible ad.

Ok, so, Dell.com > Home & Home Office > (on the left panel, under the part that says PC Operating Systems right above the videos) Open-Source PCs.
I'm not, it's really hidden.

There's probably an idea on raising Ubuntu out of obscurity.

Another one.

i like the Dual-boot ideas, these might get ubuntu more exposure to consumers and another option when selecting components

Ubuntu may never be in Dell's front page by itself, but if we get them to offer dual-boot who knows.

the majority of us have to dual-boot anyway.

i will feel much better if i have to purchase a windows laptop, as i know it also comes with ubuntu.

i would prefer dual-boot over windows-only any day.
