Dell plans to expand its Ubuntu PC and notebook offerings due to continued demand Dell has seen for the Ubuntu products, said Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu creator. Shuttleworth also founded Canonical, the company responsible for offering support for Ubuntu Linux users.
What's been announced to date is not the full extent of what we will see over the next couple of weeks and months,
There are additional offerings in the pipeline,Shuttleworth said during an interview. Dell spokeswoman Anne Camden did not make an official statement about future products, but did say that Dell is happy with the response the company has received for Linux. Even though most of the products sold were likely to previous fans of Linux and open source technology, some first time customers also made purchases. Dell currently offers five products which run the Ubuntu operating system.Source: DailyTech
