First Impressions: My Ubuntu-based Dell

Fri, 2007-08-10 17:18

When Dell first announced its line of preinstalled Linux PCs a couple of months ago, Maximum PC was eager to check them out. But, fearing the tough criticism for which Max PC is widely known, Dell flatly refused to send us a system to check out. We weren't surprised, honestly, but we were a little annoyed. As it happens, though, I was in the market for a new laptop anyway, so I decided to plunk down my own personal credit card and buy a Dell Inspiron 1505N with Ubuntu preinstalled. Here's what I think of it.

The 1505N arrived at my door yesterday via Maximum PC

"What we have heard predominantly from customers is that they want to be able to mix and match their data center applications, but we haven't seen significant demand for Linux applications on the desktop or for desktop virtualization on top of Linux," Ramji said in an address titled "Linux and Windows Interoperability: On the Metal and on the Wire."

But, he said that while he does hear a lot of requests for this from developers in the Linux community, the feedback Microsoft is getting from customers and its Interoperability Executive Customer Council with regard to the desktop is that they want .Net and Java interoperability. via eWeek.com
