Earlier today, we began offering Ubuntu 7.10 on the Inspiron 530n desktop to customers in China. We did this because many Dell China customers have asked about it there.
Ubuntu 7.10 offers many new functions.
such as DVD playback. Update from Lionel: My apologies, we are not supporting DVD playback in China.
In the time since we introduced Ubuntu 7.10 in the United States, the U.K., France, Germany, Spain, Latin America and Canada, our engineers have been testing Ubuntu so we could offer it there. Dell China Ubuntu customers can call Dell for basic installation and configuration help. Canonical will provide one year tech support. Customers in China can get more details about the operating system at Canonical's Ubuntu website here.
Last year, we introduced Optiplex 330 and 755 preinstalled with SUSE Linux Desktop 10. This is another step in that process.
