Chris Smart reports on the availability of a 10″ Linux netbook from Dell in Australia. I went to check it out and noticed some oopses on the Dell site – the operating system icon, and the availability of Norton Security (is there an Ubuntu version? I don’t know). It is somewhat scary that the generic icon they use for “operating system” is a specific logo for a vendor’s product (scary for competition, but also scary for that vendor as such usage can undermine trademark rights).
If you know someone at Dell, ask them to fix…
Also, the Linux version does not come with a customisation option for an office suite (while the windows config has the option of adding office).
