Mark Shuttleworth announced that we can soon expect more PCs from top-tier PC makers with Ubuntu Linux preinstalled:
During a brief Q&A session after Mark Shuttleworth's keynote here at Ubuntu Live, an audience member asked the Canonical founder if we'll see more top-tier PC manufacturers offering Ubuntu pre-installed. "Absolutely," Mark said, though he was coy about who exactly his company is talking to. He said he wasn't ready to make any announcements today.

Dell recently launched a line of Ubuntu-powered machines. They were a hit, and the partnership immediately set open-source advocates guessing who would be the next major PC manufacturer to offer hardware with Ubuntu pre-installed. Some say Lenovo, some say Toshiba --but at this point it's all speculation.
