Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell is getting ready to launch systems with Ubuntu Linux, but is not yet releasing details of the final specifications. However, the company did say on Friday that as well as a consumer version of Ubuntu, it had plans to launch a small-business version 'in the future'. After some confusion over Dell's Linux strategy, the company said it felt the need to clarify things. "I wanted to be clear that Dell does have plans to offer Linux to more consumers in additional locations outside the United States," said Dell's Lionel Menchaca, digital media manager.

Or just pick the most popular one. Whether or not Ubuntu is your choice distribution or not is meaningless. The differences between SUSE and Ubuntu are negligible to end users and by standardizing dell makes it easier for customers and their own support staff.

Is it really that hard to install suse if you really want it? Give me a break...
