Michael Dell has a soft spot for Linux

We're still waiting for Dell to make good on their word that they will offer Linux on their computers sometime in the near future. While we all sit and speculate over which distro they will offer, we've discovered which one Michael Dell uses.

That's right, The president and CEO of Dell uses Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn on his Precision M90 laptop. In addition to running Linux he also sports other OSS such as OpenOffice, VMWare and Firefox. Could we see some of these offered on a Dell in the future too?

I can only imagine that Ubuntu will one of the Linux offerings from Dell. Why else would their top-dog be using it on his laptop? Then again, maybe he's always had a soft spot for penguins.
