I remember last year that Dell were doing laptop deals with Ubuntu as the supplied OS, removing the need for the almighty Vista. This seems to have disappeared from Dell's offered products. Does anyone have any info on this? Is it because Windows 7 is released and Microsoft have some pull on this manufacturer? Or just Dell not seeing enough interest in Ubuntu? Pretty unsatisfactory either way.
And does anyone have any suggestions of how to get a laptop package without Windows - any particular manufacturers which are accommodating?
