Default Mini Ten Software Questions - 06-03-2009, 01:12 AM


I am interested in buying a Mini- under the Dell / Boeing purchase plan. I am especially interested in the Ubuntu version of the offering.

If one is exceptionally persistent one that there is a Ubuto option on the Mini-10, and that that version features an integrated web camera and a significant hard-drive Does the Ubuntu Mini-10, like the Mini-9 before it, 1) come loaded with Open Office, 2) a browser ( Firefox), 3) and a range of other “open” software, and 4) some m minimal picture viewer?

Either way if you go with the Ubuntu option or the Windows option, they will include a CD for Ubuntu and a Driver cd for Windows, hense you can pick any one. And yes Ubuntu does come preloaded with those. The computer doesn't determine Ubuntu, it is Ubuntu that is already programed with all those stuff into it.

I don't have an Ubuntu system, but if the one you're interested in doesn't have those, you can download them. Firefox does come with the Linux version of the Mini.

Open office and all those programs you listed are part of the standard install of ubuntu, if not, they are only an easy download away using synaptics package manger!


Please do not send me support requests via PM.
