Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Sales representatives were available for a chat, so I asked
them how could I get a Dell XPS M1330 without Windows. The
surprising answer was that it was available with Ubuntu and pointed
me to configure2.euro.dell.com/dellstore/! Plans changed one more
time; back to the original plan, get it with Linux.
"I obviously asked why it wasn't listed on dell.es/ubuntu. The
sales rep said that s/he didn't know why and that s/he will forward
my query to the relevant department. I bought the laptop with
Ubuntu that day and that was it."
