Hi,
I have tested the price of the default Vista-Notebook XPS M1330 (in Germany) and the Ubuntuversion with the same Configuration. The result was amazing :(:

Vistaversion: 909,00 €
Linuxversion: 923,44 €

Is Vista cheaper than Ubuntu?? I can not imagine.

So my wish: Make Ubuntu-Laptops competitive!

DELL/ Status Update

    @zmjjmz:  That's my job, that's what I do. And really, it does not load any slower than any other sites I visit or work with on a daily basis :)

    Neither do I, but it is somewhat slower than most sites, and if you're spending that much time checking comments and ideas (i.e., reloading a lot), then the waiting times add up.

    Well you must be very busy. You probably spend hours of your day waiting for this site to load.

    Because it's more efficient that way. Also because I'm a raging cynic.

    Anyways, I guess that piqued your attention.

    Nope, sorry. It's "IMPLEMENTED". Chances are this thread won't be checked again.
