Canonical and Dell to sell Ubuntu-powered computers in 850 Indian stores
In October 2011, Canonical and Dell launched a solid partnership to sell Ubuntu-powered computers in China across 220 stores, stores "backed" by trained staff explaining the benefits, advantages, utilities of Ubuntu to consumers.
The China "deal" is to be expanded in the near future to 350 stores in the next months because "the response has been phenomenal".
Along with the ambitious plans in China, Canonical has just started another powerful expansion, announcing a new "front" for the partnership with Dell, expanding the Ubuntu-based program in India, where 850 stores are to sell Dell computers powered by the globally known Ubuntu operating system.
"The machines - including the new Inspiron 14R and new Inspiron 15R - will be available with Ubuntu pre-installed from June 21st", machines filled with Ubuntu One, the polished Unity, enhanced security, powerful Ubuntu Software Center, etc, a full-fledged mix that is to probably bring a massive wave of open-source-ness in India.
