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."

Bought an Ubuntu XPS system

I recently bought an Ubuntu XPS system from Dell. It's a nice machine. It's only about $50 or so more then building it myself, and it works out of the box.

I have also installed OpenSuse 10.3 on it and that works good as well. It's nice to see the major vendors supporting Desktop linux, it's been about 10 years of desktop linux and it's nice to see progress.
