Dell has announced that it will start to sell computers with Ubuntu's version of Linux. I use a PowerBook and wouldn't go back to Windows unless I get a new MacBook with Parallels, but I am interested in Linux, which can also be run on Parallels. I tried Kubuntu on my Sony desktop(which just collects dust now), it is essentially Ubuntu with the KDE desktop. The only problem I had was it would recognize my WPA2 network, which I believe has been fixed in the newer versions. None the less, the more choice we have when buying a computer, the cheaper the prices of computers will be. It's a win win for all of us, well, maybe not all us(M$).
