Dell, Ubuntu in Canada

Dell today announced to its Canadian and Latin America customers that the Inspiron 1525n now has the option of shipping with Ubuntu Linux 7.1, as well as with the Canadian models of the XPS M1330n and Inspiron 530 - the latter two will ship throughout Latin America soon. Like the previously announced US, UK, Spanish and German models, the computers will feature DVD playback capability. Support options are available starting at $65 for 30 days, all the way to $275 for 1 year of standard support from Canonical.

The inclusion of Ubuntu Linux in Dell's computers gives users a choice of which operating system to use, for those that are unsatisfied or otherwise disinterested in Windows. Ubuntu's strong points lay in its ease of use and open source nature, making it an ideal choice for home users and hobbyists.

    Ubuntu is actually not a bad OS, even form that non-geek that just uses email and surfs the web.

    So THIS article stays on MacNN, but any useful (loose term, trust me), mac-related stories end up on electronista?
