Bullies of Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu may not be the golden child of Linux, but how can you be. Our 
| community grows larger every year, and you can't please everyone. Also I will 
| be the first person to admit that Ubuntu has issues. Cough bloat cough, oh 
| excuse me. As part of the Linux community though ask yourself this. Do we 
| want to make Linux a more well known OS? If you answer yes thank Ubuntu, 
| because I know of more and more people who have switched to Linux and Ubuntu 
| was the gateway drug.      



Dell’s Linux Ads: Microsoft’s Nightmare Before Christmas?

,----[ Quote ]
| For at least the third time in recent weeks, prominent Dell newspaper
| advertisements feature the Inspiron Mini 9 Netbook running Canonical’s Ubuntu
| 8.04 (that’s a small Linux notebook, folks). The VAR Guy hears Microsoft “has
| gone postal” over the Linux notebook ads. You might even say this is
| Microsoft’s nightmare before Christmas. Here’s the complete scoop.
| [...]
| At $349, Dell’s low-cost Ubuntu Linux system is “giving Microsoft fits,”
| according to one source familiar with the Microsoft-Dell relationship. “It’s
| one thing to have Dell ship Linux to consumers,” said the source. “It’s quite
| another to have Dell advertising Linux to millions of consumers in a Sunday
| newspaper heading into the holiday season.”

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
