Ubuntu-Dell is selling well. Will HP Follow Dell With Ubuntu Linux PCs?

http://software.seekingalpha.com

Initially, I was skeptical about Dell's decision to sell selected consumer PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed.

But after a few days of testing, I'm a skeptic no more. And I'm not alone. Dell insiders tell me that the Ubuntu PCs, introduced in late May, are selling well -- though they decline to share exact sales figures with me.

Ubuntu'd, you're getting a Dell

http://lxer.com

The story of a new Dell laptop.
The finale is the best part: "Since then, I've had only one opportunity to use her laptop. I used it to check my email. It was fast, and beautiful, and hers. That's right, I had to give it right back to her. My little one has grown up. As much as it hurts, Linux no longer needs me to support non-geek users."

http://www.seopher.com

In the US Dell has famously started offering Ubuntu on selected machines as a direct alternative to XP or Vista. Fortunately these machines cost less than their Windows counterparts and that's good, but Dell really should consider moving beyond offering Ubuntu; and here's why.

Why the Dell/Ubuntu Deal Won't Improve Linux's Market Share

http://itmanagement.earthweb.com

When you take a few steps back from the furor and zealotry and take a close look at what’s happened here, you will quickly start to see the cracks. One problem is that Dell appears to be under the misguided impression that listening to the IdeaStorm community is the same as listening to customers. It’s not.

Dell vs. System76 Ubuntu Comparison

http://www.madpenguin.org

"I must admit that I was completely blown away to discover that in addition to a number of other 'rolling by' products to be featured with each front page load, Ubuntu PCs were among them. This means that it is possible that PC power users, who are currently comfortable with Windows, may give Dell and Ubuntu a serious look."

Dell quietly drops extended warranty support for Ubuntu

http://www.dell.com

When the Dell/Ubuntu machines were announced, it was possible to extend the default warranty to 2-4 years as well as adding "CompleteCare" accidental breakage protection. These options have since been quietly removed from all Ubuntu systems though they remain on the Vista ones. Is Dell serious about supporting Linux or was this all just a PR stunt?

With Dell's new Ubuntu offerings, everyone had been wondering how much cheaper, if any, an Ubuntu PC would be compared to a PC with Windows Vista on it. Now that Dell has actually posted their Ubuntu offerings, I've configured some similar PCs on their site and compared them. I'm pleasantly surprised - the Ubuntu machines are noticeably cheaper.
