Submission + - Dell To Ship Ubuntu

harry666t writes: Wired says Dell's going to ship Ubuntu Linux on some of its desktop computers and laptops.

According to Desktop Linux, Dell will ship three models, an e-series "Essential" Dimension desktop, an XPS desktop, and an e-series Inspiron laptop. The desktop models range from $400 (headless) to $900 and the laptop from $900 to $1150.
