Lots of folks within Dell are committed to Linux initiatives. Ubuntu is a good example. Since we committed to offer it on certain consumer systems back in May last year, we've added many countries outside the US. Beyond just making it available though, we've also spent a lot of time to make it work right out of the box.
And that's why I wanted to take a few minutes to congratulate Dell's own Mario Limonciello for being named to the Ubuntu Core Development Team. Core-Dev members have the ability to update packages in the Ubuntu 'main' and 'restricted' components. Mario joins this elite team of developers based on the strength of his long-standing contributions as as Master of the Universe (MOTU), development of the Mythbuntu distribution, and the excellent work ensuring Ubuntu on Dell desktops and notebooks "just works". Because 'main' packages are on every install CD, his work will benefit all Ubuntu users, not just Dell owners.
