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.

They don't really promote the package manager, i think package management would entice a lot of users to linux, and do a lot to counter the old "you cant go down to a store and buy whatever crappy software off the shelf" fud.

Apple users seem to love the app store - getting everything in one place, updating everything centrally etc... Linux package management offers something very similar.
