Yesterday, Dell announced to its customers in Canada and Latin America that the Inspiron 1525n now has the option of shipping with Ubuntu 7.10, as well as with the Canadian models of the XPS M1330n and Inspiron 530. The latter two will ship in Latin America soon.
The computers will feature DVD playback capability, just like the models announced in the United States, UK, Spain and Germany. If you want support for them, the prices will start at $65 for 30 days, and will go up to $275 for one year of standard support from Canonical.
By including Ubuntu Linux in Dell's computers, users can choose which operating system to run, because there are many persons unsatisfied or disinterested in Windows. Ubuntu is well known for its ease of use, which makes it ideal for home users and hobbyists. Because it's a free operating system, you will not pay a license fee, and you will have a fully functional system from the moment it starts. Besides, you can uninstall it anytime and use the operating system of your choice, but I think you might fall in love with Ubuntu, if you start using it.
Ubuntu (an African word meaning 'Humanity to others') is the ultimate operating system developed by an entire open source community. Ubuntu is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It includes all the software you will need, from web browser, e-mail client and word processing to games, to programming tools and web server software. Ubuntu OS can be used at home, in a business environment, in public schools, hospitals, etc. The best of all is that Ubuntu is and always will be free of charge. Spread the word about Ubuntu, let everyone know what it can offer! Get it and share it with your friends and family right now from Softpedia.
