Wow, leaves me speechless, well almost ;-)
How truly marvellous, looks like Linux is at last starting to be
seriously considered for consumer machines and mass markets. 
God bless HP, hopefully this first big step will prime the pump so to
speak, and the other major PC vendors will do the same shortly if just
not to be left out. It's so exciting, Desktop Linux is really starting
to move into the light it seems :o)
Soon, millions of people will buy a machine with Ubuntu (hopefully ! )
pre-installed, in turn this will massively increase interest for the
Gnome platform and the development of Gnome and Gnome applications, will
accelerate :o)
Yeaaaahhh.... how exciting :o)))

Thanks for sharing Jeff :o)
