Looking into the Dell-Ubuntu thing. I am remembering an interview with Mark Shuttleworth, formerly of Thawte Consulting and basically Mr. Ubuntu Linux, in which he explained his remorse that Linux will never be that big because anything developed for Linux can be ported immediately to other platforms.

Well, it’ll be interesting.
