Linux The latest panic in desktop Linux lad was that Dell would no longer be selling Ubuntu pre-installed on laptops and netbooks. Alas, for those who love drama, it wasn't true. In fact, Dell is expanding its Ubuntu desktop Linux offerings.

As someone whose used/tried various versions for well over a decade, I love it as the basis for my Palm Pre but it's sadly disappointing as a desktop. It always seems just a little behind.

I think it will continue to be successful in niche/specific areas but will never grow on the desktop until several factors are overcome, including ease of upgrading individual apps.
