Wow, I have never seen the free, open-source features of a Linux-based distro marketed so well. I could imagine an ignorant buyer being "wow this sounds impressive, good job Dell!""The operating system loads quickly and can handle multiple programs at the same time," said Dell's Mark Obee in a blog. "The Workspace Switcher is an example of multitasking done well. It gives you the option to split the screen into multiple work areas. It helps keep things in order and is easy to switch between (see image below). The OS also comes with a software center to download free open source apps, which is a great feature, as you will not be able to install your Windows-based software on the OS."
