A first look at Dell’s ‘Sputnik’ Ubuntu Linux developer laptop

Sputnik started, Barton George, Dell’s project Sputnik lead and director of web vertical marketing, told me at OSCon as a six-month exploratory pilot to create an Ubuntu Linux-based developer laptop, It’s not just an idea now. Dell is taking Project Sputnik from pilot to product this fall. This official developer laptop is based on the Dell XPS 13 with Ubuntu 12.04 Long Term Support (LTS) This PC will offer developers a complete client-to-cloud solution. The Sputnik will allow developers to create “microclouds” on their laptops, simulating a proper, at-scale environment, and then deploy that environment seamlessly to the cloud.
