Dell Latitude ON - big win for Linux
Dude - if you're getting a Dell then you're getting Linux.
No you don't have to order one of those fancy Ubuntu pre-load deals. This is an embedded Linux that will be available on a whole bunch of new Dell Latitude laptops in a feature called Latitude ON. This is a feature that uses an embedded Linux to allow for instant on access to email, calendar and Internet.
So even if you pay for Windows Vista on a Dell Latitude - when you want instant on - you'll boot Linux.
