Dell has brought back the pre-loaded Inspiron laptop (only one model)
for the UK. In the States there are several models shipped pre-loaded.
Michael Dell is very much pro-Ubuntu, but the world is not quite ready
to go for it. That's our job! To prepare the way ....
Windows 7 and dual boot is going to be a problem anyway unless you
re-format and re-install Windows before installing Ubuntu. But in any
case it isn't difficult to reinstate a boot sector before installing
grub... I would have thought there is a workaround for dual booting (if
you MUST dual boot).
