Linux The latest panic in desktop Linux lad was that Dell would no longer be selling Ubuntu pre-installed on laptops and netbooks. Alas, for those who love drama, it wasn't true. In fact, Dell is expanding its Ubuntu desktop Linux offerings.

When I see linux offered on the front page then I'll really believe they are supporting Ubuntu.

Also try anywhere else but the US, Dell will probably not sell to a consumer.

Isn't Dell the only major player even offering Linux right now? They're smart enough to realize that it's not ready for mass adoption. They're not going to push it to all users.

Desktop Linux is ready for adoption. The masses are not ready to adopt desktop Linux ;)
On servers and mobile phones Linux has already been adopted.
