Dell has further plans for Linux desktops

— 11:28 AM on July 9, 2007

There seems to be no question that Dell isn't merely testing the waters with its Linux-powered desktop PCs. Just over a month after introducing its first Linux desktops, Dell refreshed and added a new notebook to the lineup in late June. Now, eWeek reports that Dell intends to offer the machines outside the United States and that the PC maker also has plans to give Linux a shot in the business market.

On Dell's Direct2Dell blog, the firm's Digital Media Manager Lionel Menchaca simply states, "We will also offer Ubuntu [Linux] to small business customers in the future." Menchaca says more details will be released about the subject later this summer, and that he will post those details on the blog as soon as they're ready to be shared. eWeek believes Dell will announce international sales of Linux PCs in early August during the LinuxWorld conference.
