Laptop Magazine reports

One third of the netbooks that Dell sold run Ubuntu. Also, Dell is seeing low return rates on those Linux netbooks, which is a good news. According to Dell, the the return rate of Ubuntu running Mini 9s are comparable to the XP rate. Beyond educating customers before they make a purchase, the success of Dellís Ubuntu offering may also be attributed to the easy to use graphical user interface that they have created which makes it easier to launch popular programs and Web tools.


I hope Netbook will help people to come out of the Windows mind set and start exploring other options.

    From what I read, they call to make sure you know what you are buying. Some people buy the system without realizing it was not Windows and then they return it. Dell wants to avoid that.

    Just purchased online a Mini 9 with Ubuntu last week. Waiting on delivery now.

    Interesting though, Dell called me to confirm my purchase details. This was the first time they have called me to confirm after many years of purchasing Dell computers. Based on the questions they asked, I wonder if they did so in order for me to upgrade to Microsoft, or perhaps a higher end computer.
