Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Officially, Dell hasn't said a word yet about which Linux it will be preloading on its desktops and laptops. Several sources within Dell, however, have told DesktopLinux.com that Dell's desktop Linux pick is going to be Ubuntu. While unable to confirm this through official Dell channels, we have heard the same story now from several internal Dell sources. They tell us that the computer giant will be preinstalling the newly released Ubuntu 7.04. These systems will be released in late May 2007."

It doesn't really matter what distro Dell places on their boxes. If it works for Ubuntu then I know the hardware support is good for Redhat and other linux distros since the kernels, Gnome and KDE are very similar. It is nice to know I could buy a Dell box and just install Redhat or CentOS on it. It seems like a win for Desktop Linux in general.
