Dell: Third of Inspiron Mini 9 netbooks run Linux

Posted on Saturday, February 28 2009 @ 03:28:51 CET by


Dell unveiled about a third of all Inspiron Mini 9 netbooks run the Ubuntu Linux operating system. Linux is only offered on the $249 base system, the models with Windows XP cost at least $50 more.
Laptop Magazine quotes Dell's Jay Pinkert as saying the uptake of Ubuntu-based Inspiron Mini 9s is "well above the standard attach rate for other systems that offer Linux." Pinkert adds, "We have done a very good job explaining to folks what Linux is." Dell believes pricing plays a big part in the Linux systems' popularity, and interestingly, it says return rates for Windows and Linux netbooks are "comparable."
