Hardware, Embedded Systems About a year ago, Dell made an important move. Pushed by thousands of comments in its IdeaStorm website, the company started offering Ubuntu preloaded on a small selection of its machines. Initially only a US-based program, but later on, some European countries followed. However, criticism was not absent; buyers complained the machines were hard to find on Dell's website and that Dell did not do enough to promote sales of the Ubuntu machines. Today, Dell has commented on the whole Dell-Ubuntu marriage.

You'd be surprised how many otherwise intelligent adults think that misnaming things is somehow cute, witty, and/or funny.

Agreed, from the standpoint of someone whos almost used Linux a decade this is just childish.

Just to satisfy my curiosity, how high on the anal retentivity scale would you rate yourselves?

Not related to myself but I'm betting you want something along the lines of "deep and wide" to satisfy your question.
