One amazing piece of hardware, just put 6 SATA connectors on it and it is a perfect Linux server. Just 4 Watts (plus 3x10W for HDDs) instead of 100+ will make my hydro bill go down quite a bit.
Month after month I was checking Dell’s Canadian online store to see if Ubuntu pre-loaded laptops and desktops are available, but as everything here, ultra-conservative canadian Dell office refused to offer any cheaper and safer computing solution, instead forcing people proven expensive, proprietary and virus-laden Microsoft Windows systems. But…
Now you can order Ubuntu 7.10 based laptops and desktops for approximately $50 cheaper then their Windows pre-loaded brothers and sisters. My favorite is M1330 which is the first slick laptop from Dell.
Get yourself a Dell!
