Wow. Good job Dell. They went with an Open Source OS that is actually pretty fun and easy to use. They did something right but now I have this weird feeling.

No they pay the regular price they always have for windows. Lol!!

Dell is just offering Ubuntu for all those whiny tools that asked for an alternative to Windows but would never even buy a Dell in the first place.

Windows will have the same price as always, Ubuntu will be price reduction. It will be a sad day if linux comes preinstalled with a bunch of spyware that comes on windows versions. Wouldn't surprise me though.

I know exactly what you mean. Like when Dell started overclocking. Or using TEC (or whatever that H2C thing is).

It's even better than before - the linux dells are as much as 20% cheaper than their vista-bearing counterparts. Before the linux comps were more expensive (don't ask me how)
