More Dell Linux PCs

Dell is planning to expand its range of Linux-based PCs, according to Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Ubuntu. Dell launched its first Linux PCs in May, featuring Ubuntu preloaded; Shuttleworth claims that Dell has so far been happy with the demand, and plans to introduce new Linux systems in the near future. "What's been announced to date is not the full extent of what we will see over the next couple of weeks and months," he tells Reuters. "There are additional offerings in the pipeline."

Dell representative Anne Camden has said she cannot confirm any new products, but that response has indeed been good. The bulk of sales are reputed to be coming from open-source enthusiasts, with a relative handful having decided to try Linux for the first time.
