Dell UK drops Ubuntu PCs & NoteBooks

Dell UK stopped selling consumer PCs preloaded with Ubuntu, online from its website, “A search for Ubuntu on Dell UK returns only one laptop – Dell Latitude 2100. Dell insists that it’s continuing to sell Ubuntu systems, but only over the phone. “Dell has offered select consumer systems with Ubuntu pre-installed for more than two years, and is continuing to do so,” a company spokesperson said.

“A number of our current consumer and SMB systems are available with Ubuntu, including a number of Inspiron and Vostro laptops and desktops, popular Inspiron Mini 10 netbook and Studio XPS 7100 desktop.”

“This isn’t a permanent decision, and Dell remains committed to offering Ubuntu.” However, the spokesperson couldn’t confirm when, or even if, Ubuntu-based PCs would return to the website. The spokesperson also suggested Ubuntu is failing to win over the public.
