Dell Fails to Deliver

They had an identical deal running in January that expired at the end of the month, it seems to me to be a special discount just for the Linux boxes, probably funded by you know who?

I haven’t looked at this deal, but then, the Vista machines had more memory and nVidia by default, even with the discount!
That lead me to weigh up the guilt of ordering a Vista laptop and replacing it with Ubuntu. I decided to just find another laptop.

Yes, my cynical mind had also wondered whether there might be some conscious targeting going on here...

On another note, I have had 4 friends/family members back in Canada who would have bought an Ubuntu GNU/Linux Dell this past year. But Dell still isn't offering Ubuntu to Canadians.

I'm scratching my head wondering why.

You can't help feeling that Dell's heart isn't entirely in this programme - now why might that be?
