[News] Dell to Make Ubuntu GNU/Linux Available on Several Lines Within Weeks

Dell to choose 

,----[ Quote ]
| According to our sources, Ubuntu will be released on a Dell
| e-series "Essential" Dimension desktop, an XPS desktop, and an
| e-series Inspiron laptop.
| The e-series systems are budget-priced PCs that start at $408
| without a monitor. The base systems come with 512MB of RAM and
| a 160GB SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) hard drive. It
| appears that Dell will only be offering Ubuntu on one of the two
| systems in this family. The E521 is powered by an AMD Sempron
| 3400+ chip and uses a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Integrated Graphics
| GPU (graphics processor unit) for graphics. The alternative, the
| E520, uses an Intel 2.8GHz Celeron D processor.



Dell casts doubts on Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell today revealed that it will restore the option to use Windows XP on
| some of its home systems, marking a potentially damaging blow to
| Microsoft's hopes for the newer Windows Vista.
| [...]
| While a popular request through the company's IdeaStorm website, the
| choice was substantially outnumbered by requests for pre-installed
| Linux, US-based technical support, and other features -- pointing to a 
| larger general demand for the change. The turnaround may be a reflection of 
| an overall backlash against Vista, observed IDC analyst Richard Shim.
