Dell to offer Ubuntu 7.04 on selected desk/laptops

I was just asking opinions, or maybe for information that someone had that
others didn't.  I realize that anything is possible, but I saw this and
started thinking along the lines of Redhat, or Suse.  I know that both still
offer "free" editions.  I guess I was wondering how close Unbuntu, and such
were to the Debian model, which I believe no one owns... Someone correct me
if I am wrong, and if there is the possibility the Unbuntu may move toward
the Redhat or Suse type structure.

Didn't say all speculation.  Just this particular bit of quite likely 
uninformed speculation.  I find it's best to bottom-post without removing
