About the Dell XPS13 developer edition

Ubuntu is such a nice and solid system for development. We use it at work (mainly on our servers) but I’ve been using it on my laptop for the last 4 years.

Hardware support on Ubuntu is really great and your organization can benefit from lower Total Cost of Ownership with an Ubuntu solution as opposed to a Windows-only solution. There are no license fees when adopting Ubuntu, however some re-training of employees may be required. Fortunately, people are used to all sorts of computing devices (every phone has a different interface, every website has an interface) that the cost of re-training should be low.

At the OpenStack summit last month we caught up with Ubuntu and Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth.

Below is a quick snippet taken from our chat with Mark where he talks about the Dell XPS 13 developer edition aka Project Sputnik.  Mark dubs the system “freakin’ awesome” and the “environment of choice for anyone doing web or cloud development.”  🙂
