 *LINUX GEEKS* will be wetting themselves at reports that Dell has made the
decision to ship open sauce OS Ubuntu on its machines later this month.

Reports on *Desktop Linux* say that while the system builder has yet to make
an official announcement, it's 99 per cent certain that Ubuntu 7.04 will be
the Linux variant preloaded on its desktops and laptops.
Ubuntu is likely to appear on Dell e-series budget machines, XPS home PCs
and possibly an e-series Inspiron laptop. Prices are expected to start at
around $400 for a 512MB Sempron or Celeron D system without a monitor. The
choice of Ubuntu isn't much of a surprise as Mikey Dell is reported to use
the OS on his home PC.

Despair - It's always darkest just before it goes pitch black...
