Dell hasn't stated yet exactly on which models it will provide pre-installed Ubuntu, but Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has a nice analysis of the different options and most likely models. One thing sticks out from that list: as bigg on the LXer forum has noticed, they all have Nvidia cards and Broadcom 1390 wireless cards. Will Dell be shipping machines with no hardware 3D and wireless support? That can't be good for Linux! But it's certainly going to be good for Canonical selling paid support...
A diverse group of creative people, all geeks in their own right but not all "techies," decided to give the people of Iraq an opportunity to speak freely to a large audience about their experiences living in the midst of a war. These geeks, who call themselves Streamtime, decided to perform a Web radio experiment: they would train Iraqis to use Dyne:bolic and other free software to create instant Internet broadcasts wherever there was a computer and Internet access. In the summer of 2004, Streamtime packed up and traveled from Amsterdam to Iraq, surviving bombings and hack attacks in their quest to bring freedom of expression to a country on a rollercoaster of victory and violence. The experiment has ended, but the mission continues.

I talk about Linux a lot and very often hear that people who tried Linux move back to their Windows installation. It is, in my surroundings at least, very rare that somebody switches to Linux completely. It seams that Linux is not yet regarded as a primary OS by the main audience. In past times the reason for this was obvious, the installation of Linux was difficult and required a lot of tweaking to get it work. Also there was no real support other than user forums. I myself love the concept of a friendly and helpful community but it is not every bodies cup of tea. Especially people who don't speak the language of the digital world have to take a big step before they post a question on a forum. Since a few years the support has improved a lot. You can buy distributions like Suse which are packed with a guide. Also the installation has improved a lot, though it isn't perfect yet. No, there has to be another reason why people stick to Windows.

With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. In this tutorial I will show people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Debian Etch in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop, i.e. that has all software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that runs also on older hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
Well, that's easy to answer but, more important what is he doing? And why? Well, here is a not so quick update.
