DELL said it would launch three computer systems, including one notebook, on that will ship with the open-source Linux operating system already installed.

They will come with Ubuntu 7.04 and will have a cheap starting price of just $599.

Earlier this month, Dell joined a collaboration between Microsoft and Novell to allow Linux software to work with Windows on computer servers.

Linux is the most popular variant of open-source software. Unlike proprietary software, open-source software lets developers share code and add functions, and users only pay for custom features, maintenance and technical support.

Just thought that this might be a little interesting to some of my linux-using readers.
