Dell announces the models (and date) for Ubuntu

A blog floating around the blogosphere is reporting that he got an email from Dell, announcing that computers with Ubuntu preinstalled will be available starting next Thursday, may the 25th. The models are rumored to be “E520, 1505 and XPS 410”.

The email also stated: “We expect these systems to be less than 1% of our OS mix for the entire year which is ~20,000 systems annually”.

I hope they end up being wrong on that    😀
