Dell CEO Michael Dell has apparently added a new laptop to his personal collection of, well, Dell computers and accessories. That’s pretty unremarkable in and of itself, until you see which OS he has running the thing: Ubuntu 7.04.
I just heard that Michael’s added a new notebook to his hardware collection. It’s a Precision M90 mobile workstation with Ubuntu 7.04 and a list of open-source applications. He’s also running an NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500 graphics card with 512MB RAM.
Direct2Dell already has a comment up regarding their chief executive’s big purchase, and it includes some great questions:
1. Where’d he get it. Can I buy one?
2. Who installed Ubuntu for him? Was it factory installed?
Dude, you’re getting Ubuntu. So sweet. (and yes, that’s the last time I’ll ever be caught referencing one of the most annoying marketing campaigns ever conceived by man)
