Dell to Offer Ubuntu 7.04
May 1, 2007 Leave a comment
It’s Official. In response to the Idea Storm feedback, Dell will be offering desktop Linux. There are not a lot of details available yet, but this isn’t the “Linux on any model” option we’re looking for yet. It may be a good first step though. Dell, however, has had some Linux-related false starts in the past. From the article:
In February when Dell launched IdeaStorm as forum for customers to contribute ideas for product offerings, we received overwhelming feedback that customers wanted Linux on desktops and notebooks.
As part of an overall effort to update our Linux program, today we are announcing a partnership with Canonical to offer Ubuntu on select consumer desktop and notebook products.
Kudos to Ubuntu and Canonical for working this out. The official Ubuntu release is available here.
