Canonical and Dell, partners in 220 retail China stores
In the last months, we have been "bombarded" with numerous announcements about Ubuntu's growing and adoption, that represent more and more a viable alternative to Windows and Mac in the eyes of major "players" (HP. Dell, etc).
Canonical and Dell have started a serious retail program to sell machines pre-loaded with Ubuntu in 220 retail China stores (the number will probably grow).
"The stores will feature Ubuntu on a range of Dell computers, and will carry branded marketing collateral in-store, trained staff positioning the benefits and advantages of Ubuntu to consumers and will be supported by a retail team of Ubuntu merchandisers, set up to support the stores".
