Hardware, Embedded Systems "It has been over four months since Dell started shipping computers preloaded with Ubuntu GNU/Linux to home consumers in the United States. Lets take a moment to look at the progress that has been made so far. John Hull, manager of the Linux Engineering team in Austin was kind enough to let me interview him by e-mail. Besides commenting on the current state of affairs with Ubuntu on Dell machines, he also offers some insight in how the Linux team at Dell works and opens a small window into the future of Linux at Dell."

I also bought an Inspiron 1420N. But here in Malaysia, Ubuntu is not offered pre-installed. So I settled for one with FreeDOS OS.

It wasn't that much cheaper compared to the one offered with MS products. But hey, I'm happy I'm not contributing to the treasure chest at Redmond ;)

Dell Linux Engineering team has also remastered a copy of the Ubuntu 7.04 Live CD, and it's available for download.

Thanks for the love DELL ;)
