Ubuntu 7.10 on XPS M1330, Ubuntu on Dells comes to Spain

In response to feedback from Dell customers who want Linux on more hardware and in more countries, Dell has announced that starting today, customers in Germany, United Kingdom, France and now Spain can purchase Ubuntu Linux 7.10 with built-in DVD playback on the XPS 1330n (in addition to the previously-released Inspiron 530n desktop system). Surprisingly enough, this time it will be the U.S. customers who watch their European counterparts receive an offering first and are forced to wait for availability in their country. Open source supporters everywhere are probably very satisfied with Dell's frequent decisions to give them what they want. I can't stress how important I believe OEM support for Linux is.
