Dell will begin selling computers with Linux preinstalled at the factory
Long ago, Dell launched a project called Project Sputnik , which was aimed at software developers to sell notebooks, ultrabooks-XPS 13 at a lower price than usual, bringing factory-installed operating system ubuntu 12.04, free distribution Linux.
And now, given the success of the initiative and popular demand, the company extended the program to all general consumers, resulting in some selected markets may offer a dell xps 13 with Ubuntu pre-installed to their customers.
This is a great sign for the company to again take seriously the sale of computers with open source software, meaning that PCs will be sold at a price lower than usual, since the manufacturer saves money by not having to pay Microsoft a license for Windows.
