It is difficult for Linux to gain market share if computer manufacturers keep selling desktops and laptops with Windows pre-installed. Usually when people buy a computer and Windows is already on there, they will not change their operating system. If more computer manufacturers would pre-load Linux on their systems than more people would use it. Dell is a large manufacturer of computers and they are selling desktop and laptop computers with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. Check out their site and the models that are available with Ubuntu. The more awareness is made about Linux the better.
