Default Re: WTF, Black Friday deal has Windows with no Ubuntu option? - 11-29-2008, 08:02 PM

But you can call Dell and inform them that you don't agree with the EULA, so they have to refund you for the OS. Granted, XP is only costing Dell about $35 at this point...
I agree with the motivation for buying the Linux version. I too was willing to jump though hoops just so that I would get one with Linux on it. I bought mine the day Dell put the Mini9 up for sale on their site. My friend ordered his 3 days later, with Windows on it. He got his machine in 2 weeks, I got mine in 5. I didn't even plan to keep Linux on my Mini9, but I wanted Dell to know that alternative OS's are viable and desired.


Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED
