Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu After yesterday's unconfirmed rumour about Ubuntu being pre-installed on Dell machines, it has now become official. In a joint statement released today, Dell and Canonical announced that Dell will now offer laptops and desktop computers pre-installed with Ubuntu Linux 7.04. The computers will be sold via Dell's web site, said Canonical's director of operations Jane Silber. "We have worked with Dell to get Ubuntu fully supported and fully certified on Dell hardware," she said. "Ubuntu has the full endorsement of Dell." Update: Ubuntu Linux 7.04 Feisty Fawn review by Extremetech.

i agree, now that the biggest supplier of desktop computers has choosen to supply Linux (ubuntu) surely this heralds the year that linux finally broke into the desktop market in a big way.

Dell is no longer the top seller of computers. HP snatched that spot away a while ago. They are still #2 though.
