Ubuntu on Dell machines *very* soon

Free Software Add comments

Hey! Welcome to my site. You may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

We all knew it would happen, but to be honest, I didn’t think it would happen quite so soon. Morgan just pasted this link to me on IRC, Dell will start taking orders for Ubuntu laptops today. Wow. If you asked me six months ago, I would estimate that it would take at least 2-3 years for this to happen. So, everyone who called me too optimistic were WRONG!! Mhuhahahaha.

Dell website

They also have a mailing list for their Linux announcements: http://lists.us.dell.com/mailman/listinfo/linux-announce

Also cool, they use GNU Mailman for their mailing lists! It’s highly uplifting to see big corporates interested in selling and using free software. I just badly hope we can buy them in South Africa too, soon.

    There is an extra “w” in your link to dell’s website, not on what’s displayed, but the actual link.

  3. mike Says:

    the link to the dell.com page contains one “w” too much.
