Michael Dell runs Ubuntu
Hardware maker Michael Dell has abandoned Microsoft on his laptop and runs the free Linux operating system Ubuntu 7.04.
Dell is running a version of Ubuntu which is scheduled for release today. He is also running the VMware Workstation 6 Beta, OpenOffice.org 2.2, Automatix2, Firefox 184.108.40.206 and Evolution Groupware 2.10.
In other words for all Dell's long term devotion to Microsoft, Dell is a true Denian open source enthusiast.
According to eWeek he is running all this on a Dell Precision M90. The company describes this as a mobile workstation.
