Well done to the OpenedHand guys on becoming part of Intel, and hopefully making a bit of money in the process :-). That’s one less open source company in London now unfortunately, but hopefully they’ll be able to continue the good work they’ve been doing around mobile Linux as part of the bigger organisation.
Congratulations to the guys at Canonical following today’s joint announcement with Dell. Having used Ubuntu myself since the first release over two-and-a-half years ago I know it’s a natural fit for Dell, but given their relationships with Red Hat and Novell I’m still slightly surprised they’re not offering Fedora or SUSE options as well.
That aside, this is great day not just for Linux but for anyone like me who doesn’t want their new computer preloaded with a bloated, proprietary, DRM-embracing hairball of an operating system like Vista but really can’t face the hassle of going the self-build route. I think I’ve worked out where the next PC is coming from.
