It's not like this one was too difficult to see coming, but it sounds like Dell
just may have a few more machines
ready to take the Linux
dip in the not-too-distant future. According to Mark Shuttleworth, noted as creator of Ubuntu
, "Dell is happy with the demand it has seen for its Linux PCs," and he also mentioned that "what's been announced to date is not the full extent of what we will see over the next couple of weeks and months." As if that wasn't clear as glass, he concluded by stating that "additional offerings [are] in the pipeline," and while Dell wouldn't directly comment on the allegations, a spokeswoman did note that firm "was pleased with customer response to its Linux PCs." Chalk another one up for the open-sourcers.
