From this ex-Dell technician, that something went right. Such stories are rare where I came from.

Seriously, a happy story and a good read.

Well written story there. I don't have children... just 9 cats and a dog. Perhaps we can buy them a laptop, then just borrow it from them. Hmmmm.

I have now a read a number of "I got me a Dell Ubuntu box" stories (well, technically 2 IS a number) and one story mentioned that the courier delivering the system commented that he was delivering a lot of stuff from Dell that week.

Are there any sales figures for these systems for the first month somewhere? I am really curious about whether this move is working out for them.

I wonder if Dell would confess to figures like "10000% over expectations" ;)
