ZDNet sees the Ubuntu Based Dell Developers machine...

ZDNet has a quick update and first impression of a new Dell Laptop that will be based on Ubuntu.  The concept is cool and the laptop looks and sounds usable.  The big question is will people switch from Windows to it or will this just eat into Apple's market share?

Microsoft's Azure now supports Linux...Sort of..

Microsoft has announced that it wil now support Linux.  Well if you are running a few distros they will.  Those would be:

Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2

OpenSuse 12.01

CentOS 6.2

Ubuntu 12.04

If you didn't notice there is one very large distorbution missing from that list.  Red Hat and Fedora are not there but CentOS is.  CentOS is a dirivitive work off of Red Hat.  So it's not likely a driver issue.  It's more likely that it's a licensing and support contract thing.  We have another story about a contract they just signed so we know it's also unlikely that they aren't happy about working with each other.  Check out the podcast to hear us go into more detail about our thoughts on the whole situation.
