BBC - Computer maker Dell has chosen Ubuntu as the operating system for its range of Linux computers for consumers. Fans of Linux hope that the move will persuade more mainstream PC users to abandon Microsoft Windows and opt for the open-source operating system. London-based firm Canonical, the lead sponsor of the Ubuntu project, will ensure the software works on Dell PCs. Ubuntu includes software like office programs, e-mail, a browser, instant messaging software and a media player.
