Linux Top 3: Sputnik, Spherical Cow and Secure Boot

Every few years, it seems as though yet another hardware vendor tries its hand yet again at building and releasing Linux hardware. The latest entrant is the Dell Sputnik laptop, aka Dell XPS 13 ‘inch developer edition. The Dell Sputnik uses Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (no 12.10 here). It’s a beefy beast with an Intel i7 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD. Going beyond having just Ubuntu Linux installed on top end Dell hardware, Dell has also included a pair of community projects on Sputnik as well. The Profile Tool provides easy access to github projects enabling users to setup development environments with ease.
