Ads for Linux on Dell Appear

On March 28 Dell announced that they would be selling pre-installed Linux. Dell is now advertising “Dell Linux Desktop” on Google ads. The links only lead to Windows computers currently, but this could be a sign that Linux is coming very soon to Dell computers.

Dell is still being cagey about both which Linux distributions it will be pre-installing, and which systems will have Linux offered on them. Based on these ads, though, it appears that – in its first launch of Linux-powered PCs – Dell will be soon be offering Linux on a wide variety of systems including the Inspiron laptop line, the Dimension desktop line, and the XPS gaming PC series.

I’m glad that someone is finally understanding the real use of Linux!
