Dell Still Offers Ubuntu Amid Microsoft Loan, Windows 8.1

Filed under

Ubuntu

Dell's strategy to go private includes a $2 billion loan from Microsoft (MSFT). But the Dell-Microsoft relationship, which will include a big Windows 8.1 push, has not upended Dell's continued work with Ubuntu, the Linux distribution that has found a home on millions of desktops, servers and mobile devices.

Check www.Dell.com/ubuntu and you'll find that it re-routes visitors to a laptop promotion: XPS 13 Ultrabook Laptop, Developer Edition, running Ubuntu. Over the past few years, Dell has also offered Ubuntu desktops and netbooks from time to time in North America -- but the netbook push in particular fizzled once tablets emerged in the market.
