    News: Dell offering ubuntu 7.04 on some systems

    For those who may not have read about this.

    Ubuntu is about to make more head way. Seems Dell has announced that they will be selling systems with Ubuntu 7.04 pre-loaded, and at lower prices than another legacy O$ .....

    For further info, you can read the following two articles:

    http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS7893344128.html and this one http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS8661763902.html

    Another great day in Ubuntu land.

    Does this mean Dell will release keyboards with Ubuntu keys?

    I guess Mr. Dell would be equally happy(I heard he uses ubuntu on his laptop too!).

    I've been running Ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron for quite awhile now, glad they are stepping up.
