It doesn't come with my favorite distro. of Linux, but it's Linux!


Dell's decision to put arguably its best laptop on sale preloaded with 
Ubuntu Linux shows not only how far desktop Linux has come but how far 
Microsoft has fallen. Dell announced its Project Sputnik earlier this 
year to a warm if not ecstatic reception. The firm had preloaded Linux 
onto its consumer machines before but they were hard to find and on 
forgettable machines. However with the XPS 13 the firm is not only 
loading Linux on its most high profile laptop but showing that 
Microsoft's operating system isn't the only choice in town for OEMs and 
consumers alike.


"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone
who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it
but downright force: Whenever you give up that force, you are
inevitably ruined." - Patrick Henry
