Dell continues to expand its Ubuntu sales area

Kutz Profile: Akutz

Originally, Dell announced that it was going to ship Ubuntu systems only in the U.S.. Then Dell announced the addition of Germany, France and the U.K to the list of countries getting Ubuntu Dells. Now you can add Canada and all of Central and South America to the list.

Dell is clearly not doing this as a charity or public service; there is a real demand for these systems, contrary to what the occasional naysayer would have you believe (n.b., consider the source) .

I expect that in the not-too-distant future, Dell will add Australia and most of Europe to the list of nations being offered Ubuntu systems. I wouldn’t be surprised if the timing is planned for shortly after the Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04) release in April, or its update (aka ‘service pack’ in Microspeak) 8.04.1 in June.
