Great news: Dell now sells desktops and laptops with Ubuntu (a distribution of Linux) pre-installed. No MS tax! Hurray!
I’m planing to buy a new laptop this summer but I’ve been unhappy with my last Dell machine. So Dell is not quite high on my list of potential brands. Their move towards Linux could reverse this situation but they need to get their act together quickly. I’ve looked at the current offerings and I must say I’m not blown away by what is available right now. A laptop without bluetooth? Not in 2007. No way!
