Dell offers machines with Ubuntu Linux in 220 Chinese stores


From The Inquirer:
Dell might have scaled back its Ubuntu Linux offerings in the west but in China - the market that really matters - the firm is rolling out a range of machines running Ubuntu in 220 stores. Unlike its solitary US web-store offering, Dell presents Chinese punters with a range of Ubuntu Linux systems and better still the firm said its staff will promote the benefits of Ubuntu Linux to consumers.

Canonical and Dell announced that they were working on a strategy for flogging Dell machines running Ubuntu Linux earlier this year. However given Dell's seemingly declining interest in Ubuntu Linux, some thought the announcement was hot air from a company that just wanted to keep a Linux-friendly image, but not so.
