Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell is getting ready to launch systems with Ubuntu Linux, but is not yet releasing details of the final specifications. However, the company did say on Friday that as well as a consumer version of Ubuntu, it had plans to launch a small-business version 'in the future'. After some confusion over Dell's Linux strategy, the company said it felt the need to clarify things. "I wanted to be clear that Dell does have plans to offer Linux to more consumers in additional locations outside the United States," said Dell's Lionel Menchaca, digital media manager.

Here in the US, Dell runs ads in newspapers, magazines, and other print. These ads have a "coupon code" you can use at Dell.com to buy a certain computer with a reasonably good discount.

It's a discount.
It's usually money off or something cheap for free, like a 64MB flash drive or a t-shirt.

So yeah I guess it is kind of like food stamps except the corporations subsidizes them rather then the government.
