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."

"I've been hearing for years that Linux will steadily decrease Windows' marketshare, yet thusfar the results haven't exactly been major."

Vista is a market changing product, software that bad can't maintain Microsoft's monopoly. Linux desktop usability is better than ever, while Vista is pathetic.

"In-fact, Vista, which is allegedly pushing everyone to Linux, caused Microsoft to beat their own guidance profit-wise to the tune of half a billion dollars,"

Did you read the link I posted? If you did, you would have read this:

"A lot of the 65 per cent rise in Microsoft's Q3 revenues was brought forward from the previous quarter and is related to a coupon scheme it funded."
