Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"TIN BOX FLOGGER Dell has quashed reports that it stopped
selling machines preloaded with the Linux distribution Ubuntu.
"It was reported that Dell had given up on its Linux experiment
by going back to being a Microsoft only shop, however the firm
responded to those stories by telling The INQUIRER that it will
continue to sell selected machines with Ubuntu installed. However,
punters looking for the capable alternative to Microsoft Windows
will have to order by phone.
"The shift is due to website restructuring, according to Dell.
Apparently the company has "recently made an effort to simplify our
offerings online, by focusing on our most popular bundles and
configuration options, based on customer feedback for reduced
complexity and a simple, easy purchase experience."
