Ubuntu boss talks Jaunty Jackalope

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell has started selling some of its machines with Ubuntu pre-installed, and
| Shuttleworth says that "the machines are selling well".
|
| "[Dell] clearly sees Linux users as thought leaders", he told Open Week
| attendees. "They know it takes a lot of work to do something like Linux well
| and they work very hard at it, so we appreciate the partnership."
|
| As for mobiles, he quipped: "Linux is a perfect platform for consumer
| electronics, and the rate of adoption there is fantastic, but it's highly
| fragmented. There are many different projects, environments and frameworks
| for Linux on smartphones", he said.

Ubuntu's Mark Shuttleworth opens up on mobility and design

,----[ Quote ]
| "We have been hiring, for months, designers and user experience guys. It has
| taken much longer than I hoped. That team will be in place in Jan/Feb, I
| imagine," he said. "Whether their initial work will make a dramatic visual
| impact on Jaunty, I don't know. I know that other work, on the user
| experience front, will land, but i'll keep some surprises in store till
| later. ;-)"

Will HP Follow Dell With Ubuntu Linux PCs?

,----[ Quote ]
| Initially, I was skeptical about Dell's decision to sell selected consumer
| PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed.
|
| But after a few days of testing, I'm a skeptic no more. And I'm not alone.
| Dell insiders tell me that the Ubuntu PCs, introduced in late May, are
| selling well -- though they decline to share exact sales figures with
| me.
