    I was just at Dell.ca and found that a Inspiration 530 with Vista is cheaper
    than one with (Free) Ubuntu.

    Dell Inspiration 530 with E2160, 250 GB HD, 2 GB ram 16X DVD, Vista Home
    Pre. & 19" Monitor $599.00

    Same Insperation 530 with only 1 Gig ram & Ubuntu is $579.00 + $70.00 to
    upgrade the ram to 2 Gig's = $649.00

    Not much of a deal.

    Vista will be cheaper than Ubuntu. Let's say you buy the Ubuntu box. After
    a week of messing with it and figuring out that it doesn't run any decent
    programs, you will have to purchase Vista. Might as well just get Vista to
    begin with.

    Since Frankie Boy bases the "value" of an operating system on its price, I
    guess that Dell recognizes that when you purchase a computer with Ubuntu,
    you're getting a superior product and hence they charge more.

    Cheers.

    So, build your own or don't you know how? If you build your own, you
    definitely will save money by using Ubuntu instead of Vista.

    Now, the reason that Dell charges more for Ubuntu vs Vista is simple.
    With Vista, they get paid to install trial crap programs such as Norton,
    McAfee and Roxio. Use your fricking brain instead of your biased
    feelings against Ubuntu.

    Now you speak for others? Try sticking to your opinion rather than
    trying to come off as some kind of mind reader of everyone else.

    The point is that Dell is charging you for a free product. The computer
    should cost less. Also if you want support for Ubuntu they charge you more
    yet.

    Not a mind reader. Just speaking from experience and from talking to
    others. Lots of people try Ubuntu and them throw it to the wind after they
    realize that its a Piece O Crap.

    Remember Ubuntu is FREE and people are just not flocking to it. What does
    that tell you?

    Seems to me that Dell will have a better PROFIT margin on the Ubuntu PC's
    than ones with an MS OS installed.

    Now now, look is being nasty. You complain about others being nasty to you,
    but you fire back the same crap. What happened? Someone take your imaginary
    4000 euros?

    What is it about the fact that they're making money from bundling crap
    trial ware with Vista that you don't understand?

    Yes, Frank has made many funny and pathetic statements around here. That's
    his role as a troll.

    Unlike the expense Dell incurs supporting (or rather trying to) Vista, it's
    Ubuntu PCs are supported by the Ubuntu Community at no cost to Dell. Ubuntu
    is profitable for Dell.

    No, jerkoff, that was YOUR personal experience with Ubuntu. You too much of
    a doofus to get it installed and figuring out how to use it. Many millions
    of other computer users haven't found that task difficult at all.

    People are flocking to it and that's what's got you Vista Fanboys so
    worried. If that wasn't the case, you and Frankie wouldn't be spending so
    much time worrying about Ubuntu, now would you?

    Cheers.
