Excellent news. I am wondering what the M$ markup is, for vista it may be significant. Anyway, thats what MS get for being greedy. Once some customers get Linux preinstalled, and many of those will be ‘cheap’ students, next thing u know there will be a school subject on openoffice and ubuntu, and nobody sure what MSoffice is for.

I thought I had heard of the Dell announcement months ago, although this is the first I’ve read of it finally rolling out something with Linux. Has to beat Vista!

Yay!

But Ubuntu! Bleh :stuck_out_tongue:
