In a joint statement released today, Dell and Canonical announced that Dell will now offer laptops and desktop computers pre-installed with Ubuntu Linux 7.04. The computers will be sold via Dell's web site, said Canonical's director of operations Jane Silber.

This just in: Bill Gates (of Hell) strongly condemns Dell's decision. Microsoft to consider legal action against Dell, unless Dell immediately ceases all Linux operations. Microsoft founder Bill Gates reached by phone issued the following statement: "I am deeply saddened to hear the news about Dell's decision to offer computers with pre-installed Linux systems. We at Microsoft feel they set a bad example to the young generation of PC users who are eager to learn about the beautiful Windows OS. Unless Dell immediately stops the sale of computers with Linux, we will be forced to sue."
