Linux enthusiasts now know which Dell products will ship with the Ubuntu OS
Dell today officially launched three consumer products with the Ubuntu Linux 7.04 operating system. The XPS 410n, Dimension E520 desktops and Inspiron E1505n notebook are now available from the Dell web site. The new products give customers three different operating system options when purchasing a new product -- a system with Microsoft Windows, a machine with no OS, or a machine pre-installed with Ubuntu Linux.
"To the worldwide Linux community, I wanted to thank you for all your support," said Lionel Menchaca, Dell Digital Media Manager.
The Inspiron E1505n notebook has a starting price of $599, while the two desktops start from $599 and $849.
"The interest and enthusiasm from customers who challenged us to deliver a consumer Linux solution has been met with a team of dedicated professionals within Dell and Canoncial," said Neil Hand, Vice President of Consumer Product Group.
Dell's systems are
shipping with default Ubuntu software installed
, which has been properly configured for the Linux operating system.
While hardware support will be handled by Dell, the Linux section of the Dell Community Forum is taking care of all software and Linux issues. Canonical Ltd. is offering service upgrades on the official Ubuntu web site.
Using the Dell IdeaStorm web site, more than 30,000 users requested Linux on future Dell products. Dell first
committed to the Linux operating system in late March
