Canonical looking to tap Dell to promote Chinese version of Ubuntu OS

Filed under

Canonical is in talks with Dell on making a version of Ubuntu supported by the Chinese government available as a pre-installed OS on the PC maker's upcoming products destined for the Chinese market.

Dell is a global partner for Canonical, and so the two companies are discussing using its Ubuntu Kylin OS in the future, said Leonard Tsai, Canonical's Asia Pacific president, on Wednesday.

"When domestic users purchase Dell notebooks or desktops, what they'll buy is already pre-installed with Ubuntu Kylin," he said on the sidelines of the Dell Solutions Summit in Beijing.
