Providing a "free" OS if different from delivering a free OS.  Yes, Dell
is adding there "value add" to Ubuntu.  Have you looked at a Dell
Windows PC lately?  If you want a clean Windows install on a Dell, you
reinstall Windows.  An entire project (The Dell Decrapiffier) was
created just to address this.  It is not a surprise that they also want
to put a stamp on the Ubuntu desktop, and if we try and stop that, we
are stepping on Dell's freedom.  And having them ship a commercial
project shows the viability of the Linux market, and this is not a bad
thing.  While Dell mucking about with the desktop (any desktop) is a
ugly thing, it is a sign of a very good thing; the adoption of Linux by
the infrastructure that made the wintel standard so powerful.
