Dell Stop Selling Ubuntu-based PCs Online

Dell has recently revealed that they are no longer selling computers pre-installed with Ubuntu on their website, instead this option will only be available over the phone.

Ubuntu is arguably the most user-friendly Linux disto, however Dell has now decided that Ubuntu is more suited to advanced users, I have five years experience with Ubuntu, and I must agree recommending Ubuntu to a novice can cause a lot more hassle than it is worth.

If you choose Ubuntu instead if Microsoft Windows 7 you do not have to buy a genuine Windows 7 license, which means you save roughly $99, this is because Ubuntu is completely open-source.

As stated earlier Dell are still offering Ubuntu, however this is an option only available over the phone, this may change as Dell are currently trying to simplify their online store.

i dropped out of school because of Ubuntu, because it failed me to enroll to my school. It doesn't run office, games, Live messenger, Yahoo Messenger, etc. So be carefull, do not buy ubuntu, because it was coded by satan worshippers. do this: Stop going to parties, save your 99$ and use it to buy microsoft windows.
