ZD Net Dell will very soon unveil PCs with Linux preinstalled in Europe:
After some confusion over Dell's Linux strategy, the company said it felt the need to clarify things. "I wanted to be clear that Dell does have plans to offer Linux to more consumers in additional locations outside the United States," said Dell's Lionel Menchaca, digital media manager.

In addition, Menchaca said: "We will also offer Ubuntu to small-business customers in the future."

Although Menchaca did offer more details on the Dell strategy, he did not give any further details on timing. Dell is sticking to the line that no announcement on timing will be made until it is ready.

"Dell is still working out details of its global programme and will share details when it has definitive plans," the company said in a statement.
