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.

If they updated to Karmic, they would need to pay real money again.


You mean Lucid. Canonical has since Karmic released Ubuntu 10.4 which has been out for nearly fifty days now. If Dell paid for the porting of Cyberlink's DVD player they should have taken into account the Canonical release cycle and waited for the next LTS release to come along. Meanwhile what do you think is going to happen when someone buys that computer with Ubuntu 8.10 and they get prompted to update with the words "A New Version Has Been Released" and they click the button?
