*"According to an article in Laptop Magazine on-line, one-third of Dell
Inspiron Mini 9s
sold with the Ubuntu Linux operating system. Dell senior product
John New attributed the sales volume to the lower price point of the Ubuntu
Linux machines. And the return rate of the Ubuntu Linux machines is
approximately equal to that of comparable netbooks sold with Microsoft
Windows XP. Dell spokesperson Jay Pinkert attriutes the low return rate to
Dell's good communications with its customers, saying 'We have done a very
good job explaining to folks what Linux is.'"*
