Another point to maybe mention, since it has been leaked that Dell will be
using Ubuntu on new PC`s sold
will there still be the same community involvement? Or will lit purely be a
Conical effort?  I don't want
to see everyone working exceptionally hard and then it not making the cut
even though the final
product will have an exceptional look and feel.
