Linux Dell has posted a page extolling the virtues of Linux (Ubuntu in particular), with a quick explanation of what Linux is and how it compares against Windows. Of course, the page links off to Dell's various computers that ship with Linux pre-installed.

I expect the software that comes with my computer to be updated for a reasonable time after I bought it. It doesn't have to be 10 years like Windows. But three to five would be nice. As this is a typical lifespan for a computer. But for non-LTS versions, there aren't any more updates aftet 18 months. This leaves a lot of users with a bad choice: Risk the update and ensuing breakage or use insecure and outdated software.

If I had bought an Ubuntu laptop from Dell, I would be outraged.
