It's official. Dell would offer computer and notebooks pre-loaded with the recently released Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn Linux Operating System.

In February when Dell launched IdeaStorm as forum for customers to contribute ideas for product offerings, we received overwhelming feedback that customers wanted Linux on desktops and notebooks.

As part of an overall effort to update our Linux program, today we are announcing a partnership with Canonical to offer Ubuntu on select consumer desktop and notebook products.
