Dell drops Ubuntu PCs from website… for now

Dell has stopped selling consumer PCs preloaded with Ubuntu from its website, and doesn’t know when they’re coming back.

A search for Ubuntu on the Dell UK website returns only one laptop – the Dell Latitude 2100 from the company’s business range.

Dell insists that it’s continuing to sell Ubuntu systems, but only over the phone. “Dell has offered select consumer systems with Ubuntu pre-installed for more than two years, and is continuing to do so,” a company spokesperson told PC Pro.
