Reading the Blogsphere I have found this really interesting post about how good for Linux itself is the agreement between Dell and Canonical.
The author puts on the table some interesting things to think about, like hardware support, binary drivers, Dell’s support for Linux, etc. According to him, this could have been manage better, I think off course it could, but finally Dell and Canonical are there to make money, and we can not wait any action from them without thinking how beneficial that action is going to the companies. Actually they have the obligation with the company and not with the Linux Community.
Anyway just like the author of the mentioned post points, this will be in some way good for Linux, but off course better for Canonical, I will depend on the community (as always) to use this project and ask Dell and Canonical to improve it, don’t know exactly how, but there are lots of great brains out there.
