Dell to install Linux on its pcs but why not OSX?
So Dell must really be feeling the heat. First, Michael Dell comes back as CEO and boots aside his chosen successor and then they lose their top market share spot to HP. What’s next? OSX versions….one can only hope for a player with Dell’s expertise to obtain that license but that has been tried before (oy).
Granted the new version of Ubuntu (7.04) is supposedly all that and a bag of chips but the majority of pc users still want to use MSFT programs like Word, Excel, and IE (*shudder*).
Even though there is a very solid open source program that imitiates Office is available (I personally enjoy the OpenOffice suite of software – check it out), most folks default back to the major suppliers of pcs due to the ease of ordering and configuring systems even if that privilege comes at a price.
Luckily for me, I have two (that’s right suckas), two, Fry’s nearby. Kit-built pc with dual os systems coming up!
I yearn for a Powerbook Pro but I don’t like having to pay a premium for it. Plus, while I also lose out on playing most new pc games for over a year and then after finally being able to install it I find out that most of the online players of said game have moved on to something else.
Good thing I am getting older and am more worried about creating things than wasting time…other than the internet that is…and watching movies…and…uh, you know what I mean.
