"we concluded that customers always have the option of buying the
systems and installing Ubuntu themselves, without those."
I can buy a computer from Dell with Windows on it and overwrite the HD
with Ubuntu, but that's also sub-optimal.
Adobe's Flash plugin is gratis; AFAIK, LinDVD is not however. As it is
bundled with Dell's Ubuntu systems, have we not just started trading the
'Microsoft tax' for a different 'proprietary software tax'? Is that
really any better in the long-run?
Philosophically, how does this 'Dellbuntu' really differ from Linspire?
"Starting with the best that open source has to offer Linspire adds
[...] proprietary software [...] and codecs"
Microsoft has a majority market share
