Dell PCs with Ubuntu Linux

Dell late Monday said it would ship its first Linux home PCs preloaded with Ubuntu, according to a company spokesman. While the system builder had yet to solidify its plans, it confirmed that the latest stable version (7.04) of the Linux OS would find its way on to certain desktops and notebooks with "a range of configuration options," closely following its model for Windows notebooks.

Ubuntu is generally known as one of the most user-friendly versions of Linux and may help Dell take an early lead in selling Linux to the mainstream, as previous North American systems friendly to the OS have either shipped without any major OS or else catered strictly to servers and workstations. Pricing for the Linux systems remains unavailable. [via CRN]
