Default Ubuntu 10v - 11-25-2009, 09:48 PM

Is there anyway to get a Mini 10v with Ubuntu on it? I assume it would lower the cost a little bit, considering they're not paying for the licensing of XP...

but if there's no cost difference then fuggedaboutit

Yes the black friday deal is the best deal right now,

when i bought my dell mini 10v i asked if it came with ubuntu they said no, so i did a google search for dell mini 10v and ubuntu and found a hole dell website taht sold every dell pc with ubuntu on it. including the dell mini. i thought it would be cheaper since it is ubuntu but unfortunatly the xp ones and the ubuntu ones cost teh same amount apperently. or at least thats what i was told.
