RE: Update on XPS 13/15 2016 Developer Edition availability

Hi, on the Dell website for France, the XPS 13 DE with i7 processor, 8Gb RAM and 256Gb SSD has a price of €1479

versus €1349 for the XPS 13 Windows version

As far as I can see, the only difference between the two models apart from the OS is the touchscreen in the DE. Given that I don't really need the touchscreen, what are some good reasons to buy the DE instead of the Windows edition with dual-boot Ubuntu? Is the DE expected to have a higher level of compatibility and support with respect to Ubuntu upgrades in the future than the Windows edition? 

Thanks!
