Vodcast: Dell’s Ubuntu Linux Strategy

,----[ Quote ]
| I spent June 26 at Dell’s headquarters in Austin, Texas, meeting key members 
| of Dell’s Linux team. We spent an hour discussing the broad Linux market; 
| Dell’s current Ubuntu strategy; and the PC giant’s early reaction to Moblin 
| (Mobile Linux).

Dell netbook targets primary school market

,----[ Quote ]
| Unlike the still-mythical "$100 laptop" envisioned by the nonprofit One
| Laptop Per Child organisation, Dell's machine starts at $706 and includes 1GB
| of RAM, 80GB HDD and runs on the Ubuntu operating system. It goes on sale
| tomorrow through Dell's online store.


Get a Linux-powered Dell laptop for $299

,----[ Quote ]
| The real consideration for most buyers is that the Inspiron 15n runs on
| Ubuntu Linux 8.10--a great operating system by all accounts, but no good if
| you need to run Windows apps. (I know, I know, there's always WINE, but I
| don't consider that a viable solution for everyday users. Yell at me in the
| comments if you disagree.)
| [...]
| If you think you'll go that route, I highly recommend spending an extra $35
| to upgrade the Inspiron's Celeron processor to a 2GHz Pentium Dual Core
| T4200. The Celeron's fine for Linux, but a weakling for Windows.


Delicious Dell Cupcake...(Android Cupcake, that is)

,----[ Quote ]
| Care for a Dell Cupcake? We knew you would. Credit to Dell for not only
| listening to reader suggestions, but for doing their own video hacking. At
| their own labs (hey, those kinda look like ours), they demonstrate the newest
| Android update, "Cupcake," on a Mini 10v, being quick to announce that "they
| have no plans" to announce such a thing...but that it "runs really nicely."
| So says Doug Anson, a technology strategist who works at the office of the
| CTO, who demonstrates.


Dell says Windows 7 price is possible barrier

,----[ Quote ]
| Some schools and smaller businesses may not be early adopters due to
| price. "Schools and government agencies may not be able to afford (the
| additional cost). Some of the smaller businesses may not be able to enjoy the
| software as soon as they'd like," Ward said.


Dell's Latest Latitude 2100: A Kid-Centric Netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell goes after the education market with a child-centric netbook, but will
| it make the grade?


Ubuntu to be offered by Dell Australia

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell today announced its Latitude 2100, a netbook designed specifically for
| school children. It is also the first Dell product in Australia to offer the
| Ubuntu operating system pre-installed.


New $369 Dell netbook for schools has germ-busting keyboard

,----[ Quote ]
| The $369 version weighs 2.9 pounds and runs Ubuntu Linux 8.1 on an 8-GB
| solid-state disk (SSD) drive with a three-cell battery that lasts 3.5 hours,
| said Lord.
