Dell [does not] drop[] Ubuntu in the UK [Update]

Dell has discontinued offering Ubuntu in the UK. Why?

As Mark Shuttleworth just pointed out to me, Dell is still committed to customer choice. Communication breakdown, but not a Linux breakdown.


If you want to get Ubuntu on your Dell, you may be out of luck if you live in the UK, according to The Inquirer.

A call to Dell's marketing folk in the UK confirms Dell no longer supplies Ubuntu pre-installed. "It has been discontinued in the UK," a closed source said.

That didn't last long. Sheesh.

It would have been nice to inform Mark Shuttleworth, too. I asked him this morning if he had heard. He hadn't.
