Ubuntu for the masses

Hot on the heels of my lament that the media doesn’t do Linux justice comes the news that Dell are to start shipping computers with Ubuntu. This is severn shades of greatness, and will hopefully lead to a dramatic rise in interest of Ubuntu (and free software in general) by people previously unaware of the beauty that is Linux.

But even more than that, what do I see on the Dell website? Only that Michael Dell, chairman and head honcho, uses Ubuntu and Evolution at home. Fantastic. This guy has more than enough money, business and common sense to choose anything he wants (nice set of computers, Mike), and he chooses Ubuntu.

  1. You do know that Dell used to push/sell Linux as a pre-installed OS on their machines. It was not that long ago that they pulled the option because nobody ever selected it!
