Talking about Project Sputnik and the importance of Devs to Dell


At Dell World I was interviewed about Project Sputnik, the resulting XPS 13 Developer Edition we launched and the importance of developers.

Here’s the interview (notice my fashion forward blue Dell shirt ;)

    This device looks amazing. Two questions:

    The Windows XPS 13 ultrabooks recently got nicer 1080p, higher color gamut displays. Any chance of these being available on the Ubuntu models? Would you recommend buying a regular Windows version and just reformatting with Ubuntu?

    The Ubuntu version comes with 12.04. Is there any downside to using the newest version? I’m currently using 12.10 (on an old Dell laptop) and typically stay on whatever the newest version is.

    • Howdy,
      The 1080p version is coming very soon to the XPS13, dev edition (with Ubuntu). I dont know where you are located but it will also be available very soon outside the US. You can buy the Windows version and reformat with Ubuntu but the official Ubuntu version is priced a bit lower.

      12.04 is the officially supported version but folks have got it working on 12.10

      Thanks!

        This are very good news, as I’ll have to order a new notebook as soon as possible. I hope the 1080p version will be available in EU within the next 2 weeks.

        When you say it will be available very soon outside the US can you be more specific. There’s quite a big difference between a couple of weeks and a couple of months?

      • Lets just say it will be available in many countries in EMEA very, very soon :)
