Dell now selling PCs with Ubuntu, FreeDOS

Post by pr0gram the pr0grammer »

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.

Well...it's about damn time! Just think...one day, Ubuntu will also be supported by Apple's Macintosh. And Windows will diminish...forever!!!!

Since January 2005, I've been in the Operating Systems Prototype Community. I've enjoyed learning more these past four years about the development of the Windows and Macintosh operating systems, as well as learning of new user-based projects that optimize system performance.

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

MASSIVE save!

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