Dell Announces (leaks?) its 3 Ubuntu Models; will launch them on May 24

Excerpt from this NON-OFFICIAL post: “We will be launching a Linux based OS (Ubuntu) on the [Dimension] E520 [Desktop], [Inspiron E]1505 [Notebook] and XPS 410 [Desktop] starting next Thursday, 5/24. We expect these systems to be less than 1% of our OS mix for the entire year which is ~20,000 systems annually.”

Also, Dell has updated its Ubuntu page with a little note: “Be the first to know when Ubuntu products have launched as well as other Linux announcements.” and a link to “Sign Up Now

Finally, there’s a good read here comparing why most people don’t use Linux on their computers to why most people don’t use hybrid cars; lack of general availability at comparable prices. The post ends “Dell is opening the door for the better Linux PC alternative.”
