Linux Dell has posted a page extolling the virtues of Linux (Ubuntu in particular), with a quick explanation of what Linux is and how it compares against Windows. Of course, the page links off to Dell's various computers that ship with Linux pre-installed.

A little disingenuos

The comparison table is a bit suspect. Microsoft Office isn't included with Windows, the note about (extra cost) should be balanced by OpenOffice.org being listed as (free download) for Windows rather than marked as unavailable. Photo Editing doesn't necessitate extra cost for Windows, neither does Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware. All this is obvious of course to the OSnews crowd but it's still not exactly commendable on the part of Dell to mislead others.
