The PC vendor will ship the new Ubuntu Linux desktop on its PCs later this year.Ubuntu 7.10 arrives Oct. 18, and not long after that Dell will start shipping that version of the Ubuntu Linux desktop on its laptops and desktops. "We will offer Ubuntu 7.10 preinstalled on our systems soon," said Anne Camden of Dell corporate communications, in an e-mail interview. "For customers who are interested in updating their existing Ubuntu systems, we advise them to visit the Ubuntu 7.10 page on our wiki, which will go live [Oct. 18] after the official launch."
Dell isnt ready yet to give a shipping date. "As with any OS release, Dell needs to take the time to qualify the final code on our systems for optimal interoperability," Camden said.
