When/where was the conference?  I think many large manufactures have
offered Red Hat for some time (Dell, HP, Compaq), but no Desktop Linux
OS has made it to mass consumers.  I think we are in the midst of a
major shift, if HP does indeed start offering pre-installed Ubuntu.
Maybe this is finally the year Desktop Linux became mainstream? :-)
Let's see how it all plays out...
