Ubuntu and Dell

The word "Ubuntu" may mean a universal bond that unites humanity, but these days it also refers to the tight ties between the Ubuntu desktop version of Linux and Dell, which will preload the OS onto PCs and laptops for any customers who ask.

Desktop Linux has long been maligned for its lack of driver support. Nowadays, that rap is also given to Vista.

I'd love to run a new Dell Ubuntu box alongside Vista and see if that old Linux knock still holds up. If any of you have tried 'em both, give us your verdict at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
