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.

Well not in denmark.. Danes don't read manuals or call hotlines.. They talk with the computer genie at work, in the family or google their computer problems away...
Manuals are for the fireplace, and nothing more.

That seems a bit short sighted, manuals are handy things to have. Everybody has a friendly neighborhood geek, but it's never wise to just toss manuals

They are handy, and save people lots of time especially when the manual has the serial code on it. >__>

I haven't seen a manual for a Dell in a long time. They have the warranty, the setup instructions, you know the giant poster that says plug blue A into blue B before doing C, and various packing materials. They don't have anything I would call a manual.

He would have a very small fire unless he gets lots of Dells. ;)

None that I know about, have ever read any manuals.
That include manuals for microwave-ovens, and vcr's too.
