There has been a buzz around the internet about Dell selling machines with Ubuntu Linux preloaded, and now it has happened.

http://www.dell.com/ubuntu now has the Dimension E520 desktop, Inspiron e1505 notebook, and XPS 410 desktop available preloaded with Ubuntu Linux. They are between US$50 and $100 cheaper than their equivalents with Vista.

They are also selling machines with FreeDOS - now that would be nice. A workstation with a Core 2 Duo processor, 2Gb of RAM, and a 20" LCD display for playing Wolfenstein 3D on. :D

Ubuntu (or Debian) works fine already on Intel Macs. Sure, there are a few "rough edges" but nothing too hard.

for these its 100

MASSIVE save!

FINALLY Dell seems logical! Cheap, easy to customize computers that already come with a good OS!
