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.

Sit your granny down in front of that computer, or any competent Windows user for that matter, and repeat what you just typed. After you get the dear-in-headlights look for five minutes, then maybe you'll understand why this stuff should be setup already on a pre-installed machine. It's unacceptable for newbies or anyone purchasing a pre-installed environment to resort to the command line or even Synaptic to fetch additional device drivers.
