Ubuntu and Dell
The word "Ubuntu" may mean a universal bond that unites humanity,
but these days it also refers to the tight ties between the Ubuntu desktop version
of Linux and Dell, which will preload
the OS onto PCs and laptops
for any customers who ask.
Desktop Linux has long been maligned for its lack of driver support. Nowadays,
that rap is also given to Vista.
I'd love to run a new Dell Ubuntu box alongside Vista and see if that old Linux
knock still holds up. If any of you have tried 'em both, give us your verdict
at [email protected].
