Ubuntu on Dell

As Gerry points out, it’s looking very likely that Dell will shortly start selling PC’s with Ubuntu instead of Windows. I’m delighted but suprised, as although Ubuntu is without a shadow of a doubt the most usable Linux distro available today, it’s also the least “connected”. Connected, of course, but not to the level as Red Hat or SuSE, one would have thought.

Whether or which, I look forward to the day when I can take on my first employee and sit them down in front of a fully-supported rig running Ubuntu!

  1. Adam,

    I wouldn’t use the words “instead of”; this implies that Dell are going to be only selling PCs with Ubuntu on them – a highly unlikely event ;)

    Best regards,

  2. Won’t it be instead of Windows on /those/ PC’s? Is today going to be one of those grammar pedantry days Derek? :)
