John Hull, the manager of Linux OS Technologies at Dell, has shed some more light on the Linux push happening at Dell
. In the Direct2Dell Blog
, Hull reiterates that the default Ubuntu 7.04 "Feisty Fawn" media will be installed on select Ubuntu desktops and notebooks. He goes on to mention that some restricted closed source drivers will be used (circa Wireless and modems) and that Dell is establishing a Linux Wiki. What Dell will not be offering under Linux are any extra proprietary audio or video codecs and some hardware options. More information on Dell's Linux systems should come out into the spotlight shortly.
