[News] Ten New Models from Dell All Run GNU/Linux by Default

Hash: SHA1

Dell introduces ten new laptops

| On is a flash-based barebones Linux install that gets you up and running, on 
| the Net, and with much of what you need to run the computer in instantly. 
| Dell went to great pains to avoid saying the L-word though, it might anger 
| the very touchy gods atop mount Redmond.   


Windows running under GNU/Linux. Later it can be thrown out the windows.

Are “instant on” notebooks the future?

,----[ Quote ]
| If I think about my normal notebook usage patterns, I’m pretty sure I could 
| spend a good 80 - 90% of my time in the instant on environment and only boot 
| into Windows when I needed to do something specifically Windows-centric. In 
| fact, given a properly set up Linux distro as the main OS (which should be a 
| snap to set up since these systems would/should already be Linux-compatible 
| because they are running the Linux-based instant on OS ) which would allow me 
| to handle Microsoft Office docs, and a VPN, I could do away with having 
| Windows on the system altogether and simply connect to a secondary 
| Windows-based PC when I wanted that functionality (when on the road I rarely, 
| if ever, need to run anything heavy such as Photoshop).

Select Dell Notebooks Now Cheaper With Ubuntu + Retail Vista Than Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| Since Dell has recently added several new models to the Ubuntu line, I
| decided to do price comparisons between the Linux and Windows models. I tried
| to get the systems as close as possible, but in a few cases there are very
| minor differences.


Dell’s comeback machine

| There are some surprises beneath the surface of the Latitude line as well.
| One is an optional Linux-based low-power mode called Dell Latitude On, which
| boots in two seconds. It offers more than a day’s worth of battery life for
| basic tasks like web surfing, Exchange e-mail, and viewing e-mail
| attachments, and runs on an ARM-based (ARMH) chip rather than the main Intel
| processor. (HP and Lenovo laptops offer similar Linux modes, but with fewer
| capabilities.)


Dell to launch 'Eee PC beater' today

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell is expected to unveil its eagerly anticipated attempt to out-Eee Asus'
| Eee PC later today at an event focused on a "new generation of mobility
| products".


Dell shipping five Hardy Heron systems

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell is shipping two new laptops with widescreen LCD displays and Ubuntu
| Hardy Heron (8.04) operating systems with DVD playback. Additionally, the
| largest U.S. PC maker has started offering Hardy Heron on three models
| previously available with the earlier Gutsy Gibbon Ubuntu release.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
