So… Would YOU Buy an Ubuntu Laptop?
I would. Just think, “Open Source hardware!” Kind of a neat idea! This is an open letter to Mark Shuttleworth, who founded Canonical, makers of Ubuntu Linux:
“Now Canonical and Ubuntu have made great strides toward realizing your vision yet there remains a bottleneck – people still have to install Linux. Installing Linux is easier than ever, but installing any operating system is unfortunately not trivial and is a chore that most computer users have no use for and will avoid. Remove this impediment, sell Linux pre-installed…
– there is a market for pre-installed Linux
– you already have the support system
– potential partners exist in the hardware branch
– you already have the software”
