The rumour is going around that Dell will soon start shipping desktop PCs with Ubuntu linux preinstalled:
Officially, Dell hasn't said a word yet about which Linux it will be preloading on its desktops and laptops.
Several sources within Dell, however, have told DesktopLinux.com that Dell's desktop Linux pick is going to be Ubuntu.
While unable to confirm this through official Dell channels, we have heard the same story now from several internal Dell sources. They tell us that the Austin, Texas, computer giant will be preinstalling the newly released Ubuntu 7.04. These systems will be released in late May 2007.
