Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu When Dell announced a shift in its Linux strategy last week, accompanied by a new netbook, many wondered why Dell insisted on pre-loading Ubuntu 8.04, instead of newer versions of the popular Linux distribution such as 8.10 or 9.04. BetaNews contacted Dell about it, and Dell replied explaining their rationale behind opting for 8.04.

I'm glad they are going down this road. I'd love to see a well defined and stable distro used and developed than having the newest put onto computers every 6 months and having things break. 8.04 is still supported so I don't see why people thing it's old and outdated. Dell is still putting XP on computers and that is almost a decade old now!!!

Kudos to Dell, looking forward to what they offer as they step out from the rest in using Linux!
