Recent reports have noted that Dell had stopped offering extended warranties or CompleteCare on Ubuntu-based systems. The problem occurred due to an ordering system glitch over the weekend, but Dell is working to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible: the world's second largest PC manufacturer expects to reinstate all extended warranty options and Complete Care service for the E1505n notebook later this afternoon. Any orders placed to date will ship with the warranty the customer ordered. Customers who ordered systems when the extended warranty and CompleteCare option weren't available will have the opportunity to upgrade at original price. Dell sure seems to be staying by its decision to give Linux, at least the Ubuntu distro, as fair a chance as Windows.
