Walt Mossberg Reviews Dell Ubuntu Offering

Walt Mossberg notes Ubuntu isn’t for people who want a computer that doesn’t require tech-oriented tweaking and writes, “Even in the relatively slick Ubuntu variation, Linux is still too rough around the edges for the vast majority of computer users.”

Linux’s Free System Is Now Easier to Use, But Not for Everyone:

Dell and Canonical tell me there are complex workarounds for some of the problems I encountered, and that built-in improvements are planned for others. But for now, I still advise mainstream, nontechnical users to avoid Linux.
